When Kumbaya Is Not Enough: A Practical Theology for Youth Ministry
"Writing with the lens of a theologian, the heart of a pastor, and welcome doctrinal breadth, Dean Borgman has provided a 'field book' of pastoral theologies that take seriously the social systems shaping the lives of adolescents never mind that Borgman knows more about youth culture than anybody alive. This book is a significant step toward the long awaited conversation about theology and youth ministry in postmodern culture."Kenda Creasy Dean, professor of youth, church, and culture, Princeton Theological Seminary"Dean Borgman has been a wonderful mentor and teacher for hundreds of youth workers throughout the years. In this excellent work he brings theological integrity, depth, and years of wisdom like nothing else I have seen in our field."Jim Burns, president, National Institute of Youth Ministry Chapters address such issues as family and peer pressure, music, sexuality, growth and development, and modern culture.
