Format: Paperback
I stumbled on this book because Steve and I are both on Young Life Staff together and was pleasantly surprised with what I read. I serve in a split position with both Young Life and as the High School Youth Pastor at a church and I found the book to not only have an enormous amount of transformative information, but also to be written in a way that made it easily accessible to any reader regardless of their previous theological education. In this book you will find wonderful illustrations that can be used in talks to Young Lifer's, youth group kids, and fellow youth pastors, as well as articulate explanations of complex Hebrew principles (Hesed, Jubilee, and Shalom). This book was both fun to read and incredibly impactful in how I think about, and do youth ministry. I have recommended it to Young Life leaders and Young Life kids as well as senior pastors and theology students and have not had a fear that it would be either too hard to understand or too simple to merit a honest reading. All in all, I feel that anyone doing or considering youth ministry ought to read this book. It's a fun, quick read packed full of stories and valuable theology that is bound to leave you with a better understand of what youth ministry could (and should) be.

Format: Paperback
As noted in other reviews this book is uplifting, filled with honest encouraging stories of Grace and compassion; but equally important in my mind, it is humbly courageous and deceptively profound in addressing sticky theological questions. With the candor and integrity required by young adult audiences the author explores the meaning of Jesus' crucifixion in ways both high school seniors and `senior citizens' can learn from, even if we don't always agree with his conclusions. The Church today desperately needs voices who respect the wisdom of the past, understand the confusion of the present, and trust in the surprises of the Spirit. If this book is any indication Steve Sherwood is one of those voices.

In the tradition of accessible and classic theologians like Henri Nouwen and Walter Wangerin, Steve Sherwood uses his distinctive voice and personal experiences to relate a very sweet message; God loves us right here and now. The message is communicated articulately and succinctly, allowing the reader to take the message to heart. Steve's passion for youth ministry comes across clearly, as does his love for his family, both of which serve in the book as living examples of how God is passionate about us. If you are seeking peace in your life, this book is for you. If you are wanting reconciliation in your life, this book is for you. If you are fine, all is good, and you just need a reminder that God vividly loves you, this book is for you. For those who hunger for something fulfilling and rich, consider this book as a farm-to-table five course dinner.

Fantastic book. I had to read it for a class of mine and I couldn't put it down! This book is a great representation of God's love for us. It's a book comprised of many stories and because of that, it doesn't become dull. It's a must-read.

Important, accessible exploration of the atonement--God's abundant love and grace manifested in the parable of the prodigal son and ultimately through the incarnation.
