"How much do you know about yourself?" asks the author in her first chapter. This brilliant little book is about growing up -- psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually. Based on the teachings of inspired early Christian fathers, it describes the God-given potential of every person and how to bring it about in everyday life. In a refreshing and clear style, the author deals with such issues as self-image, decision-making, false guilts, the gift of sex, responsibility, prayer, and God's immense love for every human being.
Written in 1973 for teenagers and young people, it continues to be life changing today for both teens and adults striving to live the Christian life.
