This was another one I had to read for school. There is some good information here, but it did not need to be 600 pages.

The book covers 36 different topics, but I found two pieces of advice particularly helpful.

1.Using logic on ourselves. I consider myself pretty decent at reasoning. I can spot a fallacy. Usually I recognize a good argument from a bad. However, I don't always apply those skills to my "inner" dialogue. I'm anxious about something, but I haven't measured my level of anxiety agains
incredibly comprehensive handbook that is essential for anyone working with you. my only complaint is that the book seems to assume the white male as normative (e.g in the chapter on rage, violence, and gunfire -- which seems like too much for one chapter anyway -- there is no mention of girl violence, or gang violence. most rage and violence is attributed to loner males, like the young men involved in suburban school shootings across the country.)
A great resource for anyone in youth ministry with some excellent questions and helpful guides. A must read for those in youth work of any sort.
This is a great resource for youth/student ministers. Very applicable and easy to read
This is a good book especially for lay leaders to have as a reference guide.
