This book will help teachers in a variety of Christian youth ministry settings more effectively to plan and to teach so that their efforts will genuinely impact the lives of the teens they serve. This long-needed book will be used by professional youth workers to enhance their own practice; will equip volunteers; and will become a foundational text in college and seminary classrooms. This book is a comprehensive, research-informed text whose passion is fueled by the urgent need in youth ministry to better reach students, to inform them about God's will for their lives, and to have students experience change in their lives they can experience beyond the youth-group setting. No other text in print so fully helps youth workers teach teens holistically. This book combines adolescent development theory, educational theory, and practical applications and ideas. With this book's comprehensive outlook, teachers and youth leaders can have greater opportunities for a richer impact on students for the sake of the Gospel.
