Publishers Description You may not like it that students forgot your talk on temptation, but remembered your mouse-trap object lesson . . . . . . but the fact remains that nothing brings a lesson to life more vividly and concretely--or wakes up a drowsy Sunday school class faster--than a good object lesson. In Everyday Object Lessons for Youth Groups the authors (who are youth workers and teachers of youth workers) pool their most effective 45 object lessons into a collection that s perfect for both junior and senior high youth groups. Here are no-prep and low-prep object lessons for devotionals, Sunday school lessons, talks at camps and retreats--even for sermons. Inside you ll find object lessons about-- Beauty (using a kiwi fruit) Regret (a mirror) Divine protection (sun block) Anger (Alka-Seltzer and 7-Up) The power of words (Popsicle sticks) Priorities (manure) Confession (hydrogen peroxide) Temptation (a mousetrap) The person of Jesus (keys) Conformity (Play-Doh) Endurance (bricks) --and 34 more quirky and attention-getting object lessons. Use them to open your lessons . . . to dramatize your talks . . . to close your Bible studies with a demonstration. However you use them, you have Bible references and provocative discussion-starting questions with each object lesson to help you take it in any direction you want. And with both a topical and a scriptural index, you can find the perfect object lesson fast."

Reviews - What do customers think about Everyday Object Lessons For Youth Groups?
Good lessons for Youth Groups Oct 18, 2005
Short and sweet: the object lessons contained in the book can be used to great effect in many youth groups. Some you can even create a whole meeting around.
The "pros": quick, easy and meaningful lessons that employ methods that we see Jesus using.
The "cons": some of the lessons are not appropiate for Jr. High/Middle school age kids and could be questionable with a new group of kids as some of the lessons involve more mature themes.
Overall, a great reference and useful as a part of youth group meeting or Sunday school class.
A great start! Sep 4, 2002
This book has a lot of great lesson ideas for teens. If you need a place to start and you're looking for a book to give you weekly lesson ideas with ordinary things, there are some great thought starters in here. I was pleasantly surprized and found a lot of material that I will use over and over. Good purchase!
Two stars may be a bit of a stretch Dec 14, 2000
This book is absolutely no help. It gives one or two good object ideas but many of them do not fit with a deep spiritual teaching. the book neglects issues of salvation, sin, and the Bible. It is mainly fluff. Many of the objects needed are not common and are hard for a youth pastor to obtain on short notice.
Even a youth can teach other youth about God! Mar 26, 2000
I bought this in order to help bring the faith back to my church youth group. I am only 17 and I have been working a lot with my youth group. This book has helped give me some fascinating ideas about how to reach out. In reading this book I learned a lot my self. It has been a great help and I loved it!
