Essential For Youth Ministry Jun 19, 2006
Working with teeange guys in junior high youth group at my church, local public schools, and every summer at camps counseling high school and junior high students, TEENAGE GUYS looked like a good book to add to my youth ministry bookshelf. And it was. And this should be on every youth worker's to-get list.
Gerali uses tons of examples and stories from his personal experiences as a youth worker and trained psychologist to show the state of teenage guys today, and how they are interacting with the world. He covers a whole handful of issues including homosexuality, suicide, anger, suppressed emotions in guys, intelluctual development, guys and their fathers/mothers, and the spiritual development of teenage guys. Gerali goes everywhere with his topics - even into the heavy-handed, hardly-talked-about issues facing guys. The appendixes are incredibly helpful, going deeper into physiological changes in guys as well as listing out various sexual diseases and other physical problems they face.
But Gerali doesn't just list out a bunch of problems - he talks about how to actually deal with them and help students find hope in Jesus. Don't pass this one up.
