Young people are being confronted at an increasingly early age by an anti-God, anti-Scripture worldview that desires to influence their minds, attitudes, and behaviors. Yet, believers can be hopeful, knowing that we are transformed as our minds are renewed by God’s truth (Rom. 12:2). The following resources, curated by the Ligonier editorial team, focus on building up teenagers and young adults in the truths of God’s Word, that they might effectively identify and refute ungodly worldviews, as well as grow in their knowledge of the Lord and His will.
