Wake Up And Smell The Pizza - Review


This is a devotional written for teens – all teens. It’s for those who are strong in their faith and looking for encouragement to stay that way and for those whose life is a mess and who are looking for a way out. The authors are in touch with the worries and struggles facing teens today and they communicate in ways that teens will understand.

“The Bible promises you that nothing—NOTHING—can separate you from Jesus’ love. Addicted to pornography? Jesus still loves you. Gay? Jesus still loves you. A habitual liar too terrified to let anyone see the real you? Jesus sees the real you and loves you like crazy.”


Authors Jedd and Todd Hafer discuss topics that we as parents may cringe at but they give real answers to the real questions and realities of today’s teens. They do it in a straight forward, easy to understand way with enough humor thrown in to keep it interesting.

Each chapter is short enough to start a small group meeting and to open up a discussion time. Each thoroughly covers an important issue and leads to an exercise on how to incorporate it into and make it work in real life. The Bible verses at the end of each chapter remind the reader that all this practical wisdom comes from and is found in the Bible.

When I picked up this book, titled “Wake Up and Smell the Pizza,” knowing it was for teens, I was prepared to read it for review purposes only. However, I hadn’t read very far when I discovered that I was really enjoying it. I found myself thinking that I could suggest it for a fun woman’s group study. It’s for anyone who likes to get into the basics of following Christ, have serious discussions and likes to laugh sometimes too.
