Have you ever had to read a book that was just loaded with information? More then likely, that book was extremely boring. But not this book. “Young people ask” was one of the greatest books that I’ve ever read. I loved this book for several reason, some of them are that I was especially design for teenagers. I also like that even though it was loaded with information, it was despised right and given properly, I finally like the advice it gave. These three things together made one of the greatest ...more

This was my second bible growing up! I read this book like it was a lifeline to my issues all throughout Junior and High School. Till this day, the principles that were sounded down into me through this and my personal Bible reading, have safeguarded me from ALL SORTS of trouble and helped draw me out of troubling habits as well!
I recommend this book to anyone who wishes to understand the trials of young people (Be they young or old) and be able to share with them practical, but morally upright

i will repeat what i said in a review of one their other books on this list the author as jehovah god and not the 'watchtower bible and tract society' of new york is completely insulting to the literary community and just plain WRONG.

and please avoid this out-dated and patronizing guilt guide of a book if you have a real teenager with real world issues. this was written in 1989 and was far behind the times even then.

From dating to drinking, peer pressure to choosing a career, this book is a helpful companion for these and many other issues facing youths today.

The book I read was the most recent "Questions Young People Ask" published in 2011. We received it this summer at our District Conventions being held throughout the world. I attended the Convention in Des Moines, Iowa. (July 8-10) That being said; this book was written for young people, but the information can be applied to any age group. I say that because I am a Gramma, and I found the book full of up-to-date information. I am also Young At Heart, even though I am a Gramma.

The book contains...

Other than the outdatedness of this book and the very simplistic reading, I do heartily recommend this book to Christian youths who come from a more conservative background and would like some guidance on par with the Bible.

This little piece of literature is very good at covering some of the basics. Although I did find that entering into marriage early is not an issue of this day, but rather that many youths are not entering into marriage for their relationships.

I have always appreciated some of

My grandmother gave me this book when I was about 12 and I found it far from helpful. It presupposes so much and is so terribly patronising and moralising that I doubt any teen these days would actually read it.

The book Questions Young People ask answers that work helps cover the daily problems teenagers go through, such as: why don’t my parents understand me?, why don’t kids leave me alone?, along with many other common situations teenagers go through. It helped me because it seemed to know what I am thinking & helped guide me through my own personal problems throught life. I highly recommend this book to others because it helps teenagers with their problems based on bible principles. Unfortunatel ...more

Considering the book as outdated is a relative thing to say. It really depends on how one sees morality as an issue. Whether you're a Jehovah's Witness or an atheist or what-not, if you see, say for example, SEX in a different perspective, then the book will be either relevant or irrelevant to you. But i say, the book can give you a clear direction on how not to mess up your life esp. during your teen-age years...not getting pregnant, losing your virginity to a bum, stealing, disrespecting your ...more

Life could have been incomplete without this book, I am not young but i love this. One of the best. A must in a home. TIMELY...because one of the references is the Bible, a book written millenniums ago but never go outdated, cause SOMEONE behind its writing has no beginning and no ending. Anyone saying it's outdated maybe has not even read a quarter of it, and is hasty at jumping to conclusions.

Enjoyed reading a chapter every night. Good advice and even my parents enjoyed when I asked them the question at the end of each chapter that you come up with to ask your parents. Had us talking for at least an hour each time & we learned a lot of things about each other.
Useful book ! Every young man/woman must read this book.

Recommends it for: Youths
Every young person needs one of these! A total guidebook for adolescents - it asks your deepest questions and answers them, and even gives you a journal section to make your own. A book that you can make personal - the Ultimate guidebook through adolescence, based on what the Bible advises - giving answers that work.

This book helped me out with questions that I had but was too afraid to ask. It seemed to be given to me at the right time in my life. A great informative book, with a very positive tone to it.

My mom's friend who was One of Jehovah's Witness gave this to me and honestly, this is a pretty outdated book that I really wouldn't take to consideration. Every single advice given there I have either heard of or will never do because of my own reasons (excluding my atheism here but at the time I read this in I was in questioning but this never helped). The version I got was in 2011 and even that felt like I was reading advice from the 80s.

Almost any issue that a young person face is addressed by this book. You will consult it more than once or twice. It is a small book that both parents and teens/young adults should have. It can be used as a conversation opener between parents and children and between dating young people.

This is a very good book for teenagers. Although it was written in 1989 this book really helps you as a teenager to control your feelings and emotions. Nowadays teenagers are lost because of the decreased society. They don't have anyone to help to find the right way and find real happiness. This book is good for everyone. Its not only a religious book. Someone can avoid the religious part(if they are not religious) and read the questions and answers for their knowledge.Sadly nowadays parents als ...more

This was a wonderful publication. A comment that I commonly hear inside Jehovah's organization is, "I wish I had that when I was younger." Of course this doesn't mean that Jehovah, Our God, has never been with us, for in fact "he is never that far off from each one of us." Acts 17:24-27 It definitely is a blessing to see Jehovah's Sons and daughters at work, Right!!!

One of the best books for young people. It provides practical answers to most of the questions young people ask themselves. The answers are based on God's word - the Bible which makes it more interesting and reliable.

Vital for young people to get correct counsel for today's problems right from bible principles. Very helpful for parents dealing with raising children in this troubled world.
Excellent book for all ages.
