We gave it to all of our volunteers last year for Christmas and I received many positive responses about it. It was great to see them put the stuff into practice. We also used it during our monthly volunteer staff meetings to spark ideas and discussion. Invest in your volunteers and get them this book...it'll pay off a hundred fold.
It's also usable in pretty much every church - whether conservative or liberal, evaneglical, charismatic, or mainline, since it isn't about teaching doctrine, but about how to be with young poeple (and not go insane, and not drive them insane).
I am quite impressed with it, and certainly think that all youth ministers and youth ministry volunteers should have a copy. Very helpful.
While I highly recommend this book, I will add that it is not filled with in depth information. It is just an overview, a spark to re-ignite the flame in youth workers.
The weakness of this book is that it doesn't have much to over beyond the ideas themselves. There are no case studies to illustrate the suggestions made, leaving the reader to figure it out on their own. In the end, Doug passes on a great starter resource worthy of reading, but should not be compared with his more recent and more helpful books.

This book is a simple read that gives an overall picture of the correct mindset of a small group volunteer, or small group pastor for our youth.Published on November 9, 2012 by Michael

This little book is insightful, valuable and practical. It's a quick read, and filled with useful suggestions born of Doug Fields' "in the trenches" experience. Read morePublished on March 18, 2007 by Leslie
