Worth reading. Probably best to get the ebook too to have copy and paste ability for the lists included.

The Audiobook readers are sloooooow. The book should be 4 hours, but it is drawn out to six. After trying and trying to listen to it and failing, I adjusted the speed in the Audible client. 1.75x speed would be best for listening, but was not an available option. 1.5 was still a little slow. So I listened at 2x, which was a little fast, and finished the book in 3 hours.

The tile is really interesting and the first two or three chapters are good. When they go through every detail repeating the process it becomes fairly dry and repeative. To me it seemed pretty basic: what's really transforming about our ministry. Then look at history, Scripture, trends and people to make changes. If you don't have a team that is willing to see blind spots in your ministry the process won't be effective. To do the process alone would be very difficult to do.
Good guide for thinking and planning deeper youth ministry, but I did not like this book as much as I liked DEEP JUSTICE IN A BROKEN WORLD by the same authors.
