"Don't Check Your Brains At The Door" Book Review

Don't Check Your Brains At The Door
Josh McDowell and Bob Hostetler

Don't Check Your Brains At The Door is a well laid out book about apologetics for students. It is broken into six different sections on different myths about the Christian faith. Within those sections are even more detailed chapters. The authors do a great job of covering a large amount of information in a fairly short amount of pages.
I think this book is great! It would be perfect for a middle school to early high school small group Bible study or Sunday School. The layout is perfect for a group study or even on your own. While DCYBATD doesn't necessarily break any new ground in apologetics for teens, I think it is a great introduction into different myths about Christianity. I would definitely recommend this book to my students! I do, however, think it is better suited for guys or maybe a guys and girls group, but probably not just for girls. While the information is relevant to either, I think it appeals more to guys.
It mixes stories, Scriptures, and facts together to create a great book for any teen looking to deepen their understanding of the different aspects of their faith. Get the book for your small group, Sunday School, or even just to go through with your own child!
