Story Behind the Book
A team of youth pastors approached Multnomah with the need for a visual pivotal-issues series for teens--something that would enter into their world and confront the stuff they actually think, talk, and wonder about every day. These products called for a "back of the school bus" feel. Kids don't get spoon-fed answers; they simply get enough cards on the table to create their own conversations. Now youth pastors everywhere can't seem to hand out enough of them.
