Timely, Wise, Real Nov 12, 2007
I am a youth minister of over 300 high school students and to 250 junior high students. I discovered this book through the Youth Specialties podcast a few months back and was so taken by author Walt Mueller's report of youth culture that I purchased and devoured the book.
This book offers parents and youth workers alike an opportunity to see the major trends and attitudes that are working within youth culture. I think the best treatment in this book is on Media and Marketing. Utilizing this information, I taught a class to parents of teens and then had a Life Night (our weekly gatherings in our Life Teen program) for our senior high students on Media and Marketing.
This book, especially in conjunction with "Hurt: Inside the World of Today's Teenager", can equip the parent or youth worker to become "cross-cultural missionaries" for the life and love of the young people today.
