Review:
As the title tells you, these are real stories about young people, who in today's society are often seen as uncaring and mindless, even frightening, and certainly not associated with Church. These stories with accompanying comments and thoughts, highlight the difficulties some young people certainly do have, but how they can overcome them and not only help themselves, but also serve the Church and society. Not a “how to” youth work book, but one to inspire a jaded youth worker or to encourage someone to believe youth work is worth the effort. Also, of possible use to hand out to Church Council members considering starting up youth work in their Church.
