"Student Ministry by the Book is one of the most powerful, compelling, and needed books written for those who care deeply about students and student ministry. Ed Newton and Scott Pace have created a triple threat resource that is rich in theology, highly personal in its practicality, and conversational in its tone. Furthermore, this is a book that is just as beneficial to a parent as it is to a youth pastor. I cant wait to give copies to the student ministry team at our church!"
Brent Crowe, vice president, Student Leadership University
"One of the things I have always loved about Ed and Scott is that they preach and teach by the Book. Now they have collaborated to give us a new fantastic resource in Student Ministry by the Book. You and your ministry will be encouraged and equipped with this much needed biblical philosophy and practical guide for youth ministry."
J. Roger Davis, president, YM360
"In Student Ministry by the Book, Scott Pace and Ed Newton have given clear, concise, and biblical guidelines for understanding students and building the foundations for excellent youth ministry. I know these men well, and this book is an authentic reflection of their heart for students and student leaders. If you are a youth pastor who is just "trying to figure it out," you need this book. If you want to be more than an activities director and begin to build student disciples, this is the place to start."
Andy Harrison, student ministries specialist and Falls Creek program director, Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma
"The students in your ministry will touch a day we will never see. Therefore, impacting this generation with the gospel should be the heartbeat of anyone who serves in student ministry. What you hold in your hands is an excellent tool based on biblical principles to help you make that impact! Ed and Scotts wisdom and experience in pointing students to Jesus will educate your mind, encourage your heart, as well as strengthen your mission. This book is written with passion and practicality. Read it, re-read it, and apply it! You and your ministry will be blessed because of it!"
Zac Hufty, minister of campus development, Houstons First Baptist Church, Houston, TX
"I am thrilled that Student Ministry by the Book has been included in the Hobbs College Library. It is a needed resource from authors Ed Newton and Scott Pace who know student ministry from both an academic and practical perspective. I believe Student Ministry by the Book will be an influence on student pastors and student ministries in churches for years to come. Beyond that, I hope the heart of this bookthat generations of teenagers would come to know the Lord and learn how to walk with him through his Wordis passed on to each person who reads it."
Ben Trueblood, director of student ministry, LifeWay Christian Resources
