This book had a lot of great ideas for doing youth ministry in a church context. The book didn't really talk as much about practical ways to implement these larger ideas in a youth program as I would have liked. Much of the content was, however, quite useful, especially if you are attempting to reorient the direction of your church's youth ministry.

Not just for youth leaders. Every parent should read this before their child becomes a teenager.
