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.
