Item description for Everyday Object Lessons for Youth Groups: 45 Strange and Striking Ways to Get Your Point Across to Teenagers by Helen Musick & Duffy Robbins...

Veteran youth workers Helen Musick and Duffy Robbins dip into their bag of tried-and-true teaching tricks to present this collection of 52 of their most effective object lessons. Easy and fast to prepare, these lessons are perfect for use in devotionals, Sunday School lessons, talks at camps and retreats, and even sermons for both junior and senior high groups.

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!
