We live in a day of, at best, cultural confusion and the dissipation of an evangelical voice in the public square on matters of public theology influencing public policy. The evangelical church must regain its Gospel voice by bringing the blessings of redeeming grace in evangelism and discipleship as well as its message of common grace of virtuous human flourishing and the restraint of sin.
Christians are facing a serious challenge, and here are the things you need to know to help you not just to cower under the threats or curse the darkness but to stand with confidence and compassion. You’ll understand well the biblical basis of our stance, how we got here, and what we need to do as citizens of a kingdom not of this world.
It is good to see this culturally aware, theologically astute, and biblically grounded affirmation of the biblical approach to these issues. While being faithful to the truth of the Word, it reflects hope for and love towards all people that characterize the gospel of Christ and a willingness to engage meaningfully with the culture around us.
Remodeling Youth Ministry
A Biblical Blueprint for Ministering to Students
In his efforts to help you design a healthy youth and family ministry, Chris Talbot has constructed a tremendous resource in Remodeling Youth Ministry that uniquely combines philosophy, theology, and methodology into one beautifully packaged work. Whether you feel like your ministry needs an overhaul or just a few upgrades, this fantastic book will help you remodel God’s way!
Remodeling Youth Ministry is a wonderful read for those entering youth and family ministry. It lays down biblical foundations for how and why we do what we do. For the seasoned YFM, it’s a great revisit and refresher to help us re-evaluate the methods and routines we’ve put into practice. It’s a book of substance with spot-on application in the church culture of today.”
If you’re browsing your bookstore and see Remodeling Youth Ministry on the shelf, go ahead and put it in your cart. It’s a must for the youth minister’s library. If I were teaching youth ministry in a formal sense at a college or seminary, or in an informal sense at the local church level, I would use this book. Chris Talbot does a great job of laying those foundational truths that youth ministers should know. His conversational style allows academics and novices alike to understand the best ideas and to implement the best practices for building a healthy youth ministry in your local church. I highly recommend it.”
There is a universal problem in the church with young people leaving the faith. Remodeling Youth Ministry is a fantastic resource to aid church leadership in developing a balanced but biblical approach to youth ministry. It’s an essential tool for anyone working with young people. Every youth pastor needs to read it
New youth ministers are flooded with polarized opinions that either pronounce youth ministry as unbiblical, a weed in the church, or else defend the separation of students from others in the church. Talbot has written a great reconciliation of the extremes in a way that includes contemporary and veteran voices in youth ministry. My hope is that youth ministers will take the time to digest this book and be able to practice a more balanced and intergenerational ministry that assists students in becoming lifelong disciples.
Remodeling Youth Ministry is a helpful, thoughtful, and compelling guide for the youth worker and parent alike. Balanced and applicable, you will be both challenged and encouraged. Take up and read!
In Remodeling Youth Ministry, Chris Talbot discusses a crucial dimension of our twenty-first century church: youth ministry. He provides insightful coaching to both the experienced pastor and the rookie youth minister. Unlike some books on this topic, which take a wrecking ball to the various models of youth ministry, Talbot presents a thoughtful, well-researched, and wonderfully written text suitable for the college and seminary classroom, as well as a group evaluating its youth ministry in the local church. The book’s arguments and perspectives are strengthened by the author’s use of a wide variety of voices from across our evangelical landscape.
“Remodeling Youth Ministry addresses significant questions the church faces concerning modern student ministry. I am grateful for Christopher Talbot’s work in speaking to these pivotal matters for the sake of the church’s mission and the soul of the next generation.”
