Review 1 for Shaping the Spiritual Lives of Students: A Guide for Youth Workers, Pastors and Campus Ministers
Date:December 29, 2006
AMAZING! SIMPLY AMAZING!This a deeply practical as much as spiritual read for anyone that is looking to encourage a teenagers soul towards Christ. I was humbled to learn that I had MUCH to develop in the ways of "pacing then leading" in my relationships with teenagers. I've seen the material from this book taught to youth workers, and am convinced that its pages can alter the stage we set for open, honest, and vulnerable dialogue with teenagers. Sometimes when we ask for authenticity, we get authentic sin. Glory be to God that when we allow genuine sin to surface we respond by lovingly pacing and leading that soul towards authentic faith. GREAT resource that should be on the shelf of ANYONE working with jr & sr high school students. It's something I plan on reading at least once a year. It's just that good!
