Do you lead a Christian youth group? If so, No Guts No Glory is for you. Ken Moser, Ed Vaughan and Al Stewart have put together material to help you build a youth group that lasts—that is, a group that is committed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and looks forward to spending eternity with him. They write from the conviction that young people can be changed as they come into contact with this Jesus in the living Word of God.
The aim of the book is to encourage you to think carefully and biblically about what you are doing with your youth group. The authors hope that you will be stimulated to teach the Bible, to encourage evangelism and to make disciples.
