What would today’s world look like if teens embraced love as the gospel defines it? Answering that question is the life mission of Clayton King—a pastor and professor set out to prove that there is a better way, a way that is more pure, more satisfying, and more fulfilling than any “love” that society is selling. The True Love Project is a call to embrace the true love that God has intended for us all.
With straight-to-the-point devotions that dig into the life-changing messages of the True Love Project, teen guys will be given a new perception of the love and relationships God has intended for them. In the 40 Days of Purity for Guys, teens will discover that their purity is a leading example in a misled world and is only made possible through a strength much greater than their own.
With short, engaging chapters that apply the life-changing messages of the True Love Project, teen girls will slowly and intentionally change their perception of the true love God has waiting for them with the 40 Days of Purity for Girls. Just as Jesus spent 40 days in the wilderness preparing for His ministry, young women are called to spend 40 days in the Word. For these 40 days, girls will practice a life of purity and learn to reflect the relationship of the Trinity in their own relationships with others. By doing so, teens will discover that their purity is a bright light in a dark world and is only made possible through a strength much greater than their own.
The divorce rate in America is at an all-time high and researchers tell us that a broken marriage is the greatest cause of anxiety and depression in our culture. This book was written as both an encouragement and a warning. We want to encourage couples that are married to take practical, Biblical steps to strengthen their relationship, and we want to warn those who are not married yet to ask the right questions before they tie the knot. By asking tough, important questions early on, you can avoid big surprises once you've already made the vow. Just because you love someone does not mean you are compatible nor does it mean it is wise, or the will of God, for you to marry them.
“Some people feel like God only speaks to the religious elite or the super spiritual, but this book proves that God speaks to ordinary people, if we are willing to train our ears to hear His voice and our eyes to see His activity. It includes deep Biblical insights along with amazing stories of God's providence, including seeing God raise a baby from the dead in the Himalayas, Clayton's afternoon with Billy Graham, and a crazy story that involves a severed human arm that was miraculously re-attached!
To be honest, this book is a loving punch in the face, meant to both challenge and encourage those of us who know Jesus to stop being shallow, childish and spoiled, and to get serious about laying our lives down for Jesus Christ. It explores the paradox of finding your life by losing it and being first by being last. It's a theological exploration of what it means to live a life in light of the cross of Christ, dying to your sin and your selfishness and being made alive to a greater reality - that Jesus is worth living and dying for. It includes stories of martyrs from the past, like Dietrich Bonhoeffer, as well as modern day martyrs from India, Jamaica, and other nations who have lost everything for the sake of knowing Jesus.

This is Clayton’s first book, written after 15 years of ministry and traveling the world. It begins with his childhood as an adopted son on a farm, moves into his salvation and call to ministry, and chronicles the most amazing and weird experiences of his life. It includes being mistaken for Garth Brooks, being kicked out of a Motley Crue concert, sharing the gospel with the lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, nearly dying of malaria in Kenya, and being chased by the Russian Secret Police in Moscow for climbing on statues of dead Russian presidents. It includes pictures, too. You will laugh and cry and probably read the whole book in one sitting.

It is designed as a month long devotional that will speak to students, singles, and married couples that are looking to prepare for marriage or strengthen the marriage they are in.
