Top stuff. Biblical, challenging, strips away the unhelpful. Read it.
I’m thrilled to see that this excellent book has been reprinted. During my time as National UK Youth Secretary for the South American Mission Society I constantly recommended “Christian Youth Work” as a key resource for leaders giving, as it does, a solid Biblical grounding for practical Christian youth ministry. Not before time a new generation of leaders can now benefit from Mark and Phil’s collective experience, wisdom and gift in applying the Bible to youth ministry.
Brilliantly balanced in its treatment of the theoretical and the practical, the Bible and the world, the Old Testament and the New, I found this book extremely helpful both in thinking through my approach to working with young people, and also my whole life as a Christian. Particular themes which stood out for me include the emphasis on doing a deep work among the few rather than a superficial work among many, the pre–eminent place of prayer, and the danger of focussing on numbers or results–driven ministry, when character and discipleship are God’s most important concerns. I would strongly recommend this book to youth workers and all other Christians alike.
