I started reading a new book Friday that I’m really excited about. I read Practicing Discernment With Youth: A Transformative Youth Ministry Approach by David F. White last year and really enjoyed about 2/3 of the book. I liked where White was coming from in the book, but thought that he didn’t exactly take his thoughts to anywhere, if I remember correctly. He did an excellent job sizing up where youth ministry and teenagers are at currently, but his proposed solutions and ideas seemed lacking.
What looks like to be his latest publication, along with two other authors, is Awakening Youth Discipleship: Christian Resistance in a Consumer Culture. The title just sounds interesting. I’m reading the book for a review on Youth Ministry Exchange, so I’ll post my thoughts when I’m done.
