Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Here are 101 object lessons guaranteed to energize any youth group or Sunday school class. Veteran youth workers Helen Musick and Duffy Robbins dip into their bag of tried-and-true teaching tricks to present this collection of their most effective object lessons. They're quirky. Vivid. Stimulating. Easy and fast to prepare. And perfect for use in devotionals, Sunday school lessons, talks at camps and retreats, and even sermons for both junior and senior high groups. The lessons are indexed by topic and by Scripture; and each lesson concludes with a variety of segues, applications, and directions that youth leaders can take to move into their study or talk.

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!

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.

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!

I PURCHSED BECAUSE IT SOUNDED LIKE IT WAS WHAT I NEEDED FOR MY CHILDREN'S MOMENTS AT CHURCH. THIS IS A GREAT RESOURCE BOOK HOWEVER IT IS GEARED TO OLDER YOUTH. MY CHILDREN ARE BETWEEN 2 AND 10 SO I USED SOME OF THE IDEAS BUT NEEDED TO MAKE THE LESSONS SIMPLER FOR THEM TO UNDERSTAND.

I am a youth leader and was doing devotions on my own. Recently I have found that youth seem to remember something that is visual and entertaining rather than just the words that came from my mouth. This book has proven to be very useful.
Speaking of visual entertaining. Check out these messages I have made with my youth. Feel free to show them to your youth groups... [...]

I bought this book on a lark, wanting something for my sun morn jr. high class. There are enough lessons to cull through for what you want or need. These lessons are not going to teach with no prep, though. I felt they were great for the short time we have on sun morn before worship. The object lessons are memorable, the scriptures are well thought out, and the discussion questions offer a good base to get everyone involved.
