Indestructible Joy for the Next Generations

Having a long-term vision is crucial for discipling children and youth. This book presents a vision of indestructible joy for the next generations—a joy that can’t be destroyed in the best, or worst, of times—a joy that can withstand the temptations, the trials, and the persecutions of the world. Each chapter is drawn from messages given over the past 15 years at the national conferences for Children Desiring God (now Truth78). John Piper, R. Albert Mohler Jr., Russell Moore, Bruce Ware, and more encourage parents and teachers to proclaim the whole counsel of God to nurture the faith of the next generations.
