Once again author Neale Donald Walsch acts as the verbal conduit, showing teenagers how easy it is to converse with the divine. After the enormous success of his previous Conversations with God books, Walsch was asked to write a book for teenagers. So he collected questions from teenagers around the world, brought them into his private dialogue with God, and then printed God's answers on the page. So when Claudia, age 16, from Perth, Australia, asks, "Why can't I just have sex with everybody? What's the big deal?", the answer God offers her is: "Nothing you do will ever be okay with everybody. 'Everybody' is a large word. The real question is can you have sex and have it be okay with you?" There's no doubt that the casual question-and-answer format will help make God feel welcoming and accessible to teens. And the introduction by Alanis Morissette raises the "cool" factor considerably. Nonetheless, it's not for all teenagers: older adolescents (17 and older) may find it hokey or manipulative, and preteens (10 to 12) could find some of the questions too mature. --Gail HudsonIn the author's words, CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD FOR TEENS is "a look at all the questions that teenagers from every corner of the globe are asking, and the answers that I have received from God in my private meditations." Some of the questions include, "Are you listening, "Why do good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people," and "How will I know when it will be the right time to say, 'I love you'?" To compile questions for this book, Neale Donald Walsch traveled all over the world to speak with young people in order to accurately incorporate their unique issues into his personal dialogue with God. The result is, in the words of the author, "one of the first books ever to speak to teens from God's point of view."
