New Book for Parents with Teens in Church
For every parent and pastor interested in raising confident Christians, "TESTED: A New Strategy for Keeping Kids in the Faith" is the guidance you need. West Point and Army Ranger School graduate, and former Captain, Brace E. Barber gives you hope.
By: Apologetics Speakers
TESTED provides a method for any parent or pastor to confidently help kids build a deep faith.
West Point graduate and former Army Captain, Brace E. Barber demolishes the belief that the Christian Church can't win the battle for our kids against 'science' and the public school system. In fact, he goes so far as to say that Christianity dominates easily in every area of study, and then he gives you a step-by-step method for effectively arming your kids with this powerful knowledge.
→ Are you worried that there is no way to fight the overwhelming evidence of the secular world?
→ Are you a frustrated parent wondering what your kids do in Sunday school and in youth group?
→ Do you have a sense that there is much more that we can do for our kids, but aren't quite sure what and how to do it?
→ Are you a youth pastor desiring to impact your kids for life, but feel stuck in the rut of programs?

The Church's Recent Past Does Not Have to be It's Future
Allen and Hannah left high school and left the Christian Church just like 75% of their youth group, and it wasn't even a hard decision. We had them for 18 years in our Sunday Schools, Wednesday nights and on retreats, and they chose to walk away from the faith. We had them for 18 years, knowing that as soon as they left home they would be surrounded and outnumbered by skeptics, religions and the claws of a pleasure-promoting culture hostile to Christianity. Yet, for whatever reason, we were unable to prepare them to survive and succeed as Christians in this world. Despite the determination and emotion of youth events they left the faith. How do parents and pastors protect our kids when we have already exhausted every resource and all of our energy and it still isn't working?
Information is not the Problem, Teaching and Testing Methodology Is
Brace was frustrated and concerned when he started learning about the problem. He searched for some information or curriculum that made sense, but couldn't find any. Brace found lots of great evidence for Christianity in Christian Apologetics books and even courses, but nothing that would be acceptable to address the size of the problem. The Church didn't need another book explaining the evidence for Creation or how life is designed; we have a bunch of fantastic Christian Apologetics books already. There are some wonderful Apologetics curriculums and schools too, but the great amount of effort and expertise necessary to implement them was far beyond what could work for the masses. We needed something different, something purposely designed to give the power to the parents and lay-teachers in Sunday School and pastors on Wednesday nights and at retreats.
The TESTED is Trained format is the answer.
