A foremost text on global youth ministry,
This review is from: Global Youth Ministry: Reaching Adolescents Around the World (YS Academic) (Hardcover)
Dr. Linhart and Dr. Livermore bring forth a very timely and crucial text for every Christian to read. Editing this volume was done very systematically and brings forth a beautiful collection of seasoned youth workers from around the world. In fact, in order to participate in this volume, each global youth worker had to have been in ministry for a minimum of 10 years.
This text succeeded in opening my eyes to the issues that youth face around the world and the successes and strategies of those working with them in ministry. I know of no other source by which you can get a clear picture of global youth ministry and hear from global youth workers from places like East Africa, Latin America, the Philippines, Korea, Japan, Australia, Brazil, and more.
This text is required reading for our staff at YouthHOPE ([...]) and we will continue to point people to it as a viable discussion of the theological, theoretical, sociocultural and historical issues that shape ministries around the world.
