This is a book about youth ministry - a ministry with youth based in the local congregation. Seven theological themes utilizing a "lectionary/ seasons-of-the-year framework," provide this book's core. Here is a resource to help youth and youth leaders struggle with a reconstruction of the role of the congregation in transformative ministry with youth.
"Offering a foundational approach to youth ministry, Bill Myers relates theological themes to the lectionary, to life, to the Bible, and to youth culture in an imaginative way. He links theological vision and practical approaches in a way rarely found. I am enthusiastic about this volume."
