Synopsis

There is a troubling trend showing up among teenagers. They are discontent and rebellious, jumping ship as soon as they think they can survive without the family-- some as young as sixteen years old. Michael Pearl addressed this issue in a series of No Greater Joy Magazine articles in 2006. These have now been compiled into this book, along with new material and an additional two chapters covering further issues.

Debi Pearl grew up during the 1960s at the height of the hippie revolution and the Jesus Movement. The forced draft due to the Vietnam War brought a sense of eternity to the youth, provoking them to seriously consider their souls. It was a time of a great move of the Spirit of God. As a teenager, dressed in tie-dye tee shirt and long drooping peasant skirt, she stood on the highways and byways sharing the gospel and seeing miracle after miracle of God’s amazing grace.  She married her life mate, Michael Pearl, in 1971.
