Product Description

Adolescence is a time of individuation--children are slowly finding their identity as adults, separate from their parents and other adult influences. Such a critical time of psychological development is complicated by cultural influences that shape their expectations of adulthood and color how they relate to other people and even God.

The task of the youth pastor becomes to help adolescents navigate this often treacherous journey, helping young people reconcile their experience of childhood to the reality of their impending adulthood, and rooting and establishing them in a faith that can sustain them through their adult journey as well.

In the The Adlescent Journey: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Practical Youth Ministry Amy Jacober draws on the insights of sociology and psychology and reveals youth ministry to be an act of practical theology, and helps youth pastors find their footing as they guide young people through adolescence.

Endorsements

Dr. Amy Jacober makes a significant scholarly contribution as she provides a keen analysis of adolescent faith formation through a practical theological lens. While many speak of practical theology, Dr. Jacober's book lays out one of the most comprehensive introductions to this perspective in the field of youth ministry education. Thoroughly researched, deeply reflective, intentionally contextual and eminently usable, The Adolescent Journey may soon become the seminal work on examining youth ministry and practical theology.
