In a dialog that often gets downright feisty, four youth ministry academicians delineate distinct philosophical and ecclesiological views regarding how youth ministry relates to the church at large--and leave a taste of what's profound and what's not in the four typologies: Inclusive Congregational; Preparatory; Missional; and Strategic. In Four Views of Youth Ministry and the Church, solid academic writing and an inviting tone and design create a compelling text for both in-the-field, practicing youth workers and undergraduate and graduate students.

But these thrilling, dizzying transformations are forcing the church to decide where it fits in all this progress. Shane Hipps reveals the subtle secrets of electronic culture and the hidden ways it is shaping the church. Looking beyond the details of what's happening in communities of faith, Hipps analyzes the broader impact of technology and media on the church while engaging readers with questions such as: Are media and technology value neutral?; How do our technologies change the way we think about Scripture, community, and worship?; and What cultural opportunities has the church missed?

In today's supernaturally infused society, there are many confusing experiences for teens. Stories of Ouija boards, encounters with aliens a la crop circles, and psychics on TV who use their mediumistic powers to "cross over" make it difficult to know how to identify a potential hoax from the real thing. This book written by youth speaker Mark Matlock, attempts to help you think clearly about what the Bible says regarding supernatural phenomenon. Drawing from over a decade of experience as a leader of nationwide student conferences, a research project he conducted with Barna Research on Teens and the Supernatural, and as a member of the international community of illusionists, Mark will help you learn how to "think" about supernatural events - some hoaxes others not. Matlock identifies "thinking traps" that lead to deception, such as not balancing the mind and emotions, mixing truth with lies, and making false association. With clarity, he shows you how to find Christ, and provides biblical answers to frequently asked questions about such things as Ouija boards, psychics, angels, and demons.

If you're brave enough to take an honest look at the issues facing the culture--controlled church--and the issues in your own life--read on. Do you ever look at how the Christian faith is being lived out in the new millennium and wonder if we're not doing what we're supposed to be doing? That we still haven't quite "gotten it"? That we've missed the point regarding many important issues? It's understandable if we've relied on what we've been told to believe or what's widely accepted by the Christian community. But if we truly turned a constructive, critical eye toward our beliefs and vigorously questioned them and their origins, where would we find ourselves? Best-selling authors Brian McLaren and Tony Campolo invite you to do just that. Join them on an adventure--one that's about uncovering and naming faulty conclusions, suppositions, and assumptions about the Christian faith. In this book the authors take turns addressing how we've missed the point on crucial topics such as salvation, the Bible, being postmodern, worship, homosexuality, truth, and many more.
