3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By J. Snyder on January 12, 2009
Format: Hardcover
I got to do an advanced reader copy of this book out of some luck. I have a degree in youth ministry, and was reading it from the perspective of "would I give this book to my volunteers". The short answer is "no."

I would not give this one out to the volunteers I currently have because they already know all this information. However, if I were in the process of recruiting volunteers, especially those who don't think they are good enough to work with students, I would strongly recommend this book.

It is basically a very brief overview of how to love students. The chapters are incredibly short (sometimes in a good way, sometimes not). They cover all the basics, with an emphasis on building relationships and how to do that in practical ways.

I give this four out of five for new recruits. I doubt it would be very useful to anybody else.

This book is great and a really easy-fast read. There are great tips for the non-volunteer and regular youth leader as well.
