Hook Line and Sinker, by Cary Schmidt

Hook, Line and Sinker: How the Enemy Is Dividing and Destroying the Christian Family

Hook, Line & Sinker by Cary Schmidt is a Sunday School curriculum written for teens and their parents. I have personally found it to be a phenomenal resource in my teen boys' class, and would highly recommend it to any youth director.

Schmidt begins by drawing an analogy between a fisherman trying to use lures, hooks, and bait, to catch fish; and the devil who is using the same to "hook" teenagers. He then begins to explain in detail the four most common hooks that the devil uses in our teens lives, how they can identify and avoid these mistakes, and what parents need to be doing to make sure their children stay protected.

This curriculum contains a lot of practical application and wisdom drawn from years of experience in the ministry, and clearly shows Schmidt's dedication to helping teens through their journey to adulthood.

Hey Br. Scott,

I'm really enjoying the curriculum in Sunday School, and it's really helping me a lot. Thank you for being faithful in teaching us this stuff even though we sometimes we don't show it enough. Just know that there is at least one person who is gaining a great deal out of your messages even though we crack on you sometimes about preaching out of Cary Schmidt. Boy is that a real hard name to spell.

Thanks a lot,
Jordan

Thanks Jordan! I really like it too, and I think Cary Schmidt is right on. I'm not sure I would say the same about "the other guy"... (did I type that out loud?)

Actually, I really liked the other guy too, but I think it may not have been a good fit for our class (don't want to defame him publicly).

Jordan said...

Sure ya did. It's okay, I didn't like him either, before and after you used him. :)

What other guy?

The guy that wrote another curriculum we were using. It's kind of an inside joke in our Sunday School class.
