Dean Borgman, a nationally known youth ministry expert, offers a new edition of his influential classic. Reaching a broadly ecumenical audience, this book challenges readers to think about the theological nature of youth ministry. Questions for discussion and reflection are included. This thoroughly updated edition was previously published as When Kumbaya Is Not Enough.
Praise for the first edition
''Writing with the lens of a theologian, the heart of a pastor, and welcome doctrinal breadth, Borgman has provided a 'field book' of pastoral theologies that takes seriously the social systems shaping the lives of adolescents. This book is a significant step toward the long-awaited conversation about theology and youth ministry in postmodern culture.''--Kenda Creasy Dean, Princeton Theological Seminary; author of Almost Christian
''In this excellent work Borgman brings theological integrity, depth, and years of wisdom like nothing else I have seen in our field.''--Jim Burns, author of Teenology: The Art of Raising Great Teenagers
