Influencers is a book aimed at helping young people think through, and live out, their faith in school.

Chris says: "We wrote Influencers after realising that too often young people's church life and school life were separate. What better way to grow in your relationship with God than to integrate church and school together? With this in mind, Influencers helps young people think through their faith, and what it means to live it out, in the context of school."

It's interactive, punchy and full of sound bites. It has tasks to do and bits to fill in. The aim is to help the young people's faith move beyond thought and into action. It works best by reading through a chapter (they're very short!), then having some time and space to discuss things being learnt with another person - mentors and youth leaders are the best option. It's also ideal material for a CU based in school, or even a youth group.

If you've got some young people passionate about God, or still exploring what that means, and are unsure about how to live this out in school, give this book a go. Let us know how you get on!

Available from Amazon, Wesley Owen and all good Christian bookshops!!
