If you work with youth in the church or you wish you understood better what successful youth ministry looks like, this book is a good one. Several church communities are explored through a thorough ethnography of each place. This book gives some overarching guidelines but mostly just reports what they observed - rather than giving huge lists of to-do's in youth ministry.
