Praise For Suit Up

“Phillip Larsen is a rare find among Christian writers. He has the unique ability to blend the theological withe practical in a way that remain both relevant and orthodox. This rare combination makes him an important and vital voice in the world of American Christianity where far to often we are forced to sacrifice one for the other. With Phillip, we get both, and his readers are better followers of Christ for his efforts. If you are seeking to follow Jesus in the midst of an increasingly confusing and muddied cultural construct, you need to read this book.”

“As the founder of Fieldhouse media, my goal is to interact with student athletes and educate them on how to make social media an asset while avoiding some of it’s dangers.  Social media isn’t going anywhere anytime soon and Phillip explains it in a way that anyone can understand from someone who has a casual relationship with social media to those who are heavy users.  Reading Phillip’s chapter on social media will help you better understand how to effectively navigate social media in the future!”

Phillip addresses the conversation about sex directly and appropriately, without dancing around difficult issues. It is a chapter I wish I could have read not just in my adolescence but in my early years of ministry, when “Thou Shalt Not” was the prevailing message of the church regarding sex.

In a timely fashion Phillip has composed a much needed resource for today’s “gap-year” adolescents.  Charming and conversational, Larsen has outlined the questions and concerns posed by many young adults on the fringe of Christianity.  However, this book is about more than just offering seeker sensitive wisdom, what it really offers is an invitation to dialogue and transition.  I greatly value this work and would suggest to anyone standing on the church’s fringe.

I was fortunate to have received an advanced copy of Phillip’s book, and I read it from cover to cover in a day.  The book is well written, often humorous, but thoughtful and timely in it’s approach to starting and strengthening the faith of our young adults.  It is a book that shows the continued cultural relevance of a true, real, and loving Christ in an increasingly secular world. I urge you to stand up and pry the wallet out of your big people pants, and buy “Suit Up.”  DO IT!!  RIGHT NOW!!!!
