A Book Published In 2016

We've asked everyone who accepted our challenge to read 12 books in 12 months to submit one sentence from every book they read. As John Piper says, “Books don’t change people, paragraphs do — sometimes sentences.”

Last month's category was "A book published in 2016." Here are some responses from our teen readers.

"For all our sin, I think that history shows again and again that Christians are good for a country." -Abby, from God and Politics by Mark Dever

"A shouted 'You're going to Hell' is an awful introduction to a God who desires to love and know His children." - Elizabeth, from If You Feel Too Much by Jamie Tworkowski

"Jesus did not live a calm life. He cared too much." - Sam, from Good and Angry by Dr. David Powlison
