Wouldn’t you love to have <18> faith-forming experiences with your kids before they turn <18>?
<18> is a funny and thought-provoking exchange between friends from different Christian traditions.
<18> is an insightful look into the science and theology of early faith formation from a doctor in linguistic philosophy, a youth evangelist, and an artist/mother. They expose the urgency of sharing God’s love with people under the age of <18>.
<18> speaks to every stage of development and season of life. Through deeply personal stories, Bob and Rich offer encouragement, challenges, and practical advice from firsthand Experience.
