Writing with the lens of a theologian, the heart of a pastor, and welcome doctrinal breadth, Dean Borgman has provided a 'field book' of pastoral theologies that take seriously the social systems shaping the lives of adolescents--never mind that Borgman knows more about youth culture than anybody alive. This book is a significant step toward the long-awaited conversation about theology and youth ministry in postmodern culture.'--Kenda Creasy Dean, assistant professor of youth, church and culture, Princeton Theological Seminary 'Dean Borgman has been a wonderful mentor and teacher for hundreds of youth workers throughout the years. In this excellent work he brings theological integrity, depth, and years of wisdom like nothing else I have seen in our field.'--Jim Burns, president, National Institute of Youth Ministry Chapters address such issues as family and peer pressure, music, sexuality, growth and development, and modern culture.
