Youth leaders seek an answer to the question, "How can I seek my own conversion and better serve youth by using the wisdom of the New Testament?" Becoming a New Testament Leader connects youth leaders' need to know the New Testament with the need to perfect their ministry skills.
Forty-five reflections speak to real issues, such as facing defeat, dealing with hard questions, and building unity. At the same time, they give an overview of the main themes of the New Testament.
Becoming a New Testament Leader is simple, practical, and effective. Each book of the New Testament has from one to three reflections, each beginning with a focusing Scripture passage and followed by a simple presentation on a theme from that book of the Bible. Following the commentary is a page of reflection questions to help youth leaders apply the theme to their ministry with youth in a practical context.
This book is also useful for individual reading and reflection. Both veteran and developing youth leaders as well as youth ministers, teachers, pastors, education directors, counselors, and others will benefit from its focus on every Christian's call to conversion as a foundation for ministry.
