Four Years, Two Roads: Finding Eternal Significance in High School by Derek Kim

Pre-Order Four Years, Two Roads and save

As Homecoming King, class president, and an All-American hurdler (Michigan State University track and field commit), the Lord blessed Derek with a memorable high school experience. But no accolade compared to the joy of following Jesus on the narrow road. Join Derek in Four Years, Two Roads: Finding Eternal Significance in High School as he explains how to glorify Christ through the once-in-a-lifetime opportunities of high school.

These years will fly by. You don’t want to waste them. And the way to do that is not through a 4.0 grade point average or an athletic scholarship. Want to make the most of high school? Follow Jesus. This collaboration of personal experiences and biblical exposition is an encouragement to students to live unashamed for the Gospel – no matter the consequences.

Four Years, Two Roads covers the five areas of students’ lives and every crevasse in-between; from singleness to choosing a college, from competing for God to making disciples, and even that awkward “s” word that many tend to avoid (sex). This book will challenge students to be uncommon for Christ – the only way to graduate with no regrets. High school students don’t need more rules to live by but a calling to live for; here it is.

 Finding Eternal Significance in High School


Derek has been blessed with a God-given passion and burdened with a vital responsibility to bring young people closer to the heart of God. His authentic and transparent faith, clearly shown through this work, is an inspiration to many, including myself!

Derek Kim is on a mission: to make sure that today’s high school students know they have a choice during their teenage years: they can do the right thing, they can choose Christ. This is a much needed book and dialogue, and Kim is well positioned, as a young person himself, to encourage our youth that standing apart because of your faith or lifestyle choices isn’t something to be ashamed of. Young people need a voice and they need to feel they’re not alone. This work accomplishes both.

Derek has created the MacGyver of books for students to navigate high school while walking with Jesus! This book is real, relevant, and reliable! I’m thankful for how it will lead students to live for Jesus across the country!

Four Years, Two Roads addresses a dire need in American youth culture. Derek Kim effectively explains both why and how students can still choose the harder, narrower road and serve their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Young saints will leave reading Kim’s book eager to delight in God. This is a valuable resource for any young Christian. I wish it had been available when I was in high school!

Derek has hit a home run for high school students with this book. All who read it will be better suited to not only strive after Christ, but achieve eternal success. I’m inspired by Derek, and I know that Four Years will be a difference maker for high school students everywhere.
