As you can see, Pure Faith is a treasure trove of spiritual wisdom that every teen (and probably many adults!) needs.
This book is written by Jason Evert. As a young Catholic, his books have really helped me understand and deepen my faith. I use this book every morning and evening for prayer. He starts the book with an introduction, "How to Pray." And even though we've all been taught how to pray, many struggle with it and question if they are doing it right, etc. Taking the time to read it really benefited me. He also introduces every "prayer section" with a fitting quote from a saint or other religious. The variety of prayers are wonderful. I highly recommend this book for any teen or young adult. This book and any of Jason's other books are a must have. God bless. Best Uses: Everyday prayer; Pros: Teaches what prayer is, Variety of prayers
Wonderful and friendly book for teens

I bought this book for my teenage daughter and loved it so much that I am going to purchase a copy for myself! The author is young, and the quotes and references are contemporary and timeless--from St. Thomas Acquinas, to St. Josemaria Escriva, to Mother Theresa, Padre Pio, and Pope John Paul II. The prayers will help anyone just beginning a prayer journey, to those already steeped in one. A real treasure. Thank you so much.
Great Teen Book
