In the same style of the ever popular Videos That Teach, Videos That Teach 2, and Videos That Teach 3, Fields and James deliver another round of video clips from recent movies designed to teach your students. For better or worse, movies are the storytellers for our postmodern students. With this follow up to the previous two best-sellers, you can use the "visual parables" of modern cinema to illustrate the point of your lesson or discussion. Teachable clips from 75 movie titles provide the frame work for Videos That Teach 4, an invaluable media resource for anyone who works with adolescents (or adults too, for that matter). Indexed by subject and Scripture references, each clip comes complete with summaries of the movie and the clip, start and stop times, Scripture references, and discussion-starter questions. Clips from popular movies make this highly usable book a resource that will appeal to youth workers, Bible study leaders, and Sunday school teachers of just about every denomination.

    The 50 ideas in Memory Makers give you the wherewithal to create in students vivid memories. The authors have recalled the best (and worst) that serendipity has sent them during their many years in youth ministry, then translated those occasions into a rich portfolio of memories you can create for your own group-moments that seem almost unplanned, moments that are out of the ordinary, that are particularly intense or adventurous or ceremonial.

    Memory Makers will kickstart the kind of personal and group settings that create vivid memories. Whether you work with children, teenagers or adults - whether you're a leader or a parent - you'll find years' worth of memory making events and moments waiting here.
