“Fasten your seatbelt! You are about to meet a Bible character . . . you’ve never met before! He is dressed in warm homespun cloth by the writer, C.T. Lloyd Spear. Light will shine on a dimly lit and seldom visited part of God’s Word. You will be challenged to step up, show up, and grow up! A quick and interesting read for a thirsty heart!!” -Dr. William Boyd, Chancellor, College of Biblical Studies, Houston, Texas.
Youth is possible only once, but immaturity can last a lifetime and steal your best opportunities! In Still a Kid! C.T.L. Spear introduces Jether, Gideon’s firstborn, a Bible character more obscure than Jabez. Mentioned by name in just one verse, twenty-one words enshrine Jether’s legacy for all-time. Your heart will break for the lad who bypassed the highway to fame and fortune by missing the exit ramp from immaturity and indecision. Clanging its desperate warning like a railroad crossing signal, this teenager’s failure to decide advances a practical guide for facing critical choices. Drawing from decades of youth work, the author demonstrates the lifelong tragedy of lost opportunity. The contrast to Jether’s hesitation is exhibited in Gideon’s decisive actions, which brought him success, although he too was plagued with the kind of handicaps that hold back those who are handcuffed to an endless treadmill of indecision. Lessons learned from Still a Kid! may be the catalyst needed to get you off the horns of your dilemma.
