"Four Letter Words" by Bill Giovannetti

About the Book:

When I say "four letter words" do the words true, know, pain, ouch, evil, word, damn, wait, and hope come to mind? Probably not. But for Christians, these four letter words often bring them trouble when used in discussion with non-Christians. Why is talking about Jesus becoming a cultural taboo?

In Four Letter Words, Bill Giovannetti helps teens and young adults (or anyone really) learn how to openly and boldly speak the truth about Christ when it's probably not the most popular of discussions. The book covers the touchy subjects and provides the reader with the Scripture and information needed to take on the challenges our faith faces today.

I remember being a teenager and trying to figure out all of this Christianity stuff. I knew I believed the Bible to be true and that Jesus Christ is my Saviour, but there were so many burning questions that I had, things that needed to be reconciled with the world I lived in. I wish I had this book back then, it would have saved me a lot of time! Giovannetti answers questions like:

Doesn't science contradict the Bible?

Why is there pain and suffering in the world?

Who's to say what's right and wrong?

Is hell real? Will God send people there? Why?

Wasn't the Bible written for a different time and place?

These are questions that many young Christians and many who are new to the faith often ask. And these are questions that not everyone has a quick and easy answer for. But Four Letter Words will equip you to go out into the world in confidence so that you will be able to speak the truth about Jesus with love.

Great extras: "Touchy ideas" and "Touchy scriptures" to prepare you for the statements and attitudes Christianity often comes up against; talking points to get you started talking to your friends; and QR codes to scan for additional resources.
