Product Description

Finally, a primary reference tool that calls all youth workers - students, novices, and veterans - to consider their jobs in terms of practical theology. Because who you believe God is and how you believe God works in the world greatly influences the kind of youth ministry you practice.

Join a stellar, international group of authors - youth ministry thinkers, theologians, and practitioners - who weigh the theological "first things" about youth ministry. With backgrounds and expertise in sociology, theology, counseling, missions, and Christian education, they comment authoritatively on the whys behind the youth ministry you do.

A primary textbook for undergraduate and seminary youth ministry courses, Starting Right is a must-have resource for youth workers as well. Analyzing virtually all aspects of youth ministry - modern culture, evangelism, family ministry, curriculum, networking, evaluation, and more - this textbook not only is a reference library cornerstone, it's also the perfect background tool for ministry in any denomination or parachurch organization.

Publisher's Description

Starting Right: Thinking Theologically About Youth Ministry is the first academic textbook that introduces youth ministry students (whether undergraduate or graduate level) to a marriage of solid research, real life, and accessible design. Whereas most college-level texts may reflect a thorough (though impenetrable) mastery of the field, they tend to expect readers to plow through unnecessarily thick prose and bland design because "it’s good for them." Youth Specialties doesn’t agree. In this debut title to a continuing academic book line, college and seminary students will be introduced to real-life research, real-life youth ministry dilemmas, and real-life solutions. Contributing writers represent a spectrum of Christian Education thought and practice, as well as widespread recognition in their field…transdenominational, yet the perfect background to ministry in any denomination or ministry organization This text includes thorough indexes, design, and graphics that compel readers from page to page (now that’s a first for a college text!); organization that permits professors to use any part of the text, in any order, rather than plod through the entire book from beginning to end; a perfect primary text that gives students a rich, academic, and readable (though not "popular") grasp of every aspect of youth ministry a typical Intro course touches, while also serving as an ideal secondary text.
