Publisher's Description

Dean Borgman, a nationally known youth ministry expert, offers a new edition of his influential classic. Reaching a broadly ecumenical audience, this book challenges readers to think about the theological nature of youth ministry. Questions for discussion and reflection are included. This thoroughly updated edition was previously published as "When Kumbaya Is Not Enough."
Praise for the first edition
"Writing with the lens of a theologian, the heart of a pastor, and welcome doctrinal breadth, Borgman has provided a 'field book' of pastoral theologies that takes seriously the social systems shaping the lives of adolescents. This book is a significant step toward the long-awaited conversation about theology and youth ministry in postmodern culture."--Kenda Creasy Dean, Princeton Theological Seminary; author of "Almost Christian
"
"In this excellent work Borgman brings theological integrity, depth, and years of wisdom like nothing else I have seen in our field."--Jim Burns, author of "Teenology: The Art of Raising Great Teenagers"

Culpeper Professor of Youth Ministries at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and teaches at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Seminary.

Endorsements

In his capstone work, Foundations for Youth Ministry, Dean Borgman draws together a lifetime of engagement with theology and youth ministry to provide a vista from which to view the diverging and converging streams of youth ministry philosophy and practice. The book clearly establishes Borgman as the dean of youth ministers.
-Mark H. Senter III,
professor of educational ministries, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Truly a giant in youth ministry, Borgman offers theological depth, years of experience, and contextual integrity. Weaving together a tapestry of theology, anthropology, and culture, Borgman reveals the essential foundations that shape every aspect of youth ministry. Processing these fundamentals provides the firm foundation on which youth ministry is properly constructed.
-Mark Cannister,
professor of Christian ministries, Gordon College; author of Teenagers Matter

Dean Borgman's When Kumbaya Is Not Enough was foundational for me at the beginning of my career as a youth ministry educator. My own interests in youth, theology, the arts, and social sciences meant his book was a touchstone for many of my courses. So naturally I am thrilled about Borgman's newest work picking up where Kumbaya left off. Foundations for Youth Ministry is a bold project that considers holistic theology in the context of persons, relationships, and place. As a trailblazer who remains cutting-edge, Borgman challenges much of our traditional thinking about youth ministry. And he remains a must read.
-Calenthia S. Dowdy,
associate professor of youth ministry and anthropology, Eastern University

If there is one person who has led the way in careful study of youth ministry, it is Dean Borgman. Unassuming, never one to seek the spotlight of fame or influence, Borgman has faithfully and consistently worked to remind the world that youth ministry matters. In this magnum opus, Dean has brought together decades of experience in direct ministry, teaching, and consulting to produce a grounding resource that summarizes the best contemporary thinking about the call of the church to kids. He is thoroughly current, thoughtfully integrated, and carefully critical, all while communicating a single message: God cares about young people, and so should we.
-Chap Clark,
associate provost and professor of youth, family, and culture, Fuller Theological Seminary; author of Hurt 2.0: Inside the World of Today's Teenagers

Writing with the lens of a theologian, the heart of a pastor, and welcome doctrinal breadth, Dean Borgman has provided a field book of pastoral theologies that take seriously the social systems shaping the lives of adolescents--never mind that Borgman knows more about youth culture than anybody alive. This book is a significant step toward the long-awaited conversation about theology and youth ministry in postmodern culture.
-Kenda Creasy Dean,
professor of youth, church, and culture, Princeton Theological Seminary

Dean Borgman has been a wonderful mentor and teacher for hundreds of youth workers throughout the years. In this excellent work he brings theological integrity, depth, and years of wisdom like nothing else I have seen in our field.
-Jim Burns,
president, National Institute of Youth Ministry

In youth ministry it's not enough to know what to do. We must know why we do it. Dean Borgman's book gives us the why with depth. This is practical theology at its best.
-Tony Campolo,
Eastern University

Dean Borgman has been around since the early days of Young Life. He started Young Life's suburban ministry in New England in the 1950s and helped begin Young Life's overall urban thrust in the United States in the 1960s. He has been deeply involved in training and research and has taught hundreds of Young Life staff and management personnel on adolescent culture and youth ministry in the last several decades. In the last decade, Dean has been involved in the coordination and expansion of Young Life's ministry in Africa and the Middle East. On the subject of youth ministry Dean brings wisdom, a lifetime of experience, and a great track record. I highly recommend his book.
-Denny Rydberg,
president, Young Life

A must for anyone involved in youth ministry. Dean Borgman is a man who has done his homework and paid his dues. This book gives the crucial theological framework necessary for youth ministry. It is relevant and accurate in its understanding of youth culture, particularly of urban youth culture.
-Allen A. Belton,
vice president of multiethnic and urban affairs, Youth for Christ USA
