The first book in the Youth and Theology series, it represents an early attempt to "pin down the corners" of adolescent discipleship formation as an emerging discipline by naming key themes and stating their significance for a church that longs to share Christ with young people who inhabit, and largely embrace, a frankly secular, postmodern culture.

"Most contemporary young people operate far enough from Moses moral compass that it never occurs to them that "OMG" ("oh my God," in teenspeak) has anything to do with the Ten Commandments, much less that it breaks one of them. After all, the phrase is a nearly ubiquitous adolescent throw-away line...Yet Christians should hear the phrase "oh my God" differently. Youth ministers, parents, teachersanyone who has ever loved an adolescentknow that "OMG" can be a prayer, a plea, a petition, a note of praise, or an unbidden entreaty that escapes our lips as we seek Christ for the young people we love." from the book
Using six lens the authors detail current practices and tease out underlying questions as youth ministry becomes more self-consciously aligned with practical theology.
