Undaunted: Daring to Do What God Calls You to Do - Student Edition

Have you ever felt that God has called you to do something special?  Have you answered the call? Or have
you held yourself back because you don’t feel you’re qualified to do the job? You can answer God’s call, whether you feel like you can do it or not. Author Christine Caine says, “God doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called.”

In Undaunted: Daring to Do What God Calls You to Do – Student Edition, Caine uses the incredible events in her life to illustrate her belief that God has called everyone to live an “undaunted” life. She was abused and abandoned, unnamed and unwanted, but God showed her how be undaunted, even in the face of great adversity. You may not be called to be a missionary in some foreign land, but God can give you the courage to face whatever He wants you to do, so you can be “undaunted,” too.

The book is divided into four sections, each with multiple chapters. Each section ends with a list of discussion questions.

This is a great book for teenagers to read on their own. I think it would also be a good book to be or used for study and discussion with youth groups.

Christine Caine is the director of Equip & Empower Ministries and co-founder of the anti-human trafficking organization, The A21 Campaign.

What I Like: Almost everything.

What I Dislike: The one thing that I didn’t like were the typos I found in the text. There were several of them.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: Teens and up.
