sounds like an interesting book - I've been in youth ministry for a while - I think passion is key - one of the downfalls though, I think, is that we filter it through teaching that is cheesey - 'extreme faith''extreme evangelism' 'hang time with God' etc. Teaching passion without dumbing it down is important. I will have to check out the book - thanks.


thanks for the recommendation,
i look forward to reading it.
happy new year (in advance)

the other darren

its a great book, i had to do a number of essays on youth ministry n theology this year and kenda was constantly in the footnotes. i should put my thoughts up one day on this book too, i've been telling pple in the uca here that its one of THE books to read for 2004...


i agree..an excellent book..every now and then you can tell she's writing to the princeton elite but she does a good job balancing...some great one-line quotes in there..



Hope it's okay I linked this to our site?

oh and Happy New Year!


thanks for the recommendation - ordered it on strength of a great blog post.
Have a great new year!
