Sikh Books for Teenagers and Young Adults

Teens are an interesting age when it comes to religion and spirituality. They’re starting to ask questions about the meaning of life, their place in the world, ethnicity, the existence of God, priorities in life etc. These metaphysical and social questions can often be answered through religion and if there is a family background of Sikhism, this will often be the logical place to start. However, teens are also, especially if pushed, quite capable of deciding that this religion thing is nonsense. My advice is to make it clear that the information is there, but not to push them into taking it on. 

If your teen or young adult is interested in Sikhism, the following recommended books may be helpful.
