A love for youth and a heart for their struggles is strongly evident in one of the best books I have read this year about nurturing faith, Engaging the Soul of Youth Culture: Bridging Teen Worldviews and Christian Truth, by Walt Mueller. He does a great job of bringing us inside of youth culture and then stepping back to consider the best ways we can minister to them. I highly recommend that all those who are working with high school and middle school students read this book. He also has an excellent website with load of information and resources – www.cpyu.org – it is part of his organization: The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding. If you desire to minister to our current day “Athenians” you will want to read Mueller’s suggestions for effectiveness in being a “Mars Hill” minister to youth in today’s culture!
