TEMPTATIONS AND CONSEQUENCES




An unusual book, not really a novel, a novella, a journal, or a journal of sorts. In fact I guess it would be classified as a Bible Study or devotional. The writing was stilted,  and each chapter ended with a discussion guide. Had it been written as a narrative only, with questions at the end of the book ,I believe it would have been best.

The story follows Meghan, a first year college girl, through her finding of herself, her convictions and ability to stand firm in them. 

Meghan, a Christian, is rooming with Carol and Jeff who are not. She continually preaches to each of them while although the tolerate it the tease and ridicule her. Determined to stay strong she still allows herself to play with fire when she dates a non believer.

This is a Young Adult book and has a good description of the obstacles and temptations that you encounter when you allow yourself to compromise your values and become tempted. I believe it has some good moral lessons and worth using as a study for a young group or class.

I received this book free for an honest review from Westbow Press and Thomas Nelson Publishers.
