In The Secret Message of Jesus, McLaren clears away the dust of two thousand years of the Christian religion to get to the most important questions facing Christendom: Could it be that the church has misunderstood or, in some cases, intentionally distorted Jesus' core message? What if Jesus was right--but right in different ways than we ever realized? What if many of us have carried on a religion that somewhere along the way missed rich and radical treasures hidden in the essential message of Jesus of Nazareth? // McLaren calls us to look hard, think deeply, and search long with him . . . even if the answers overturn our conventional ideas, priorities, and practices. // "Through the years, I have frequently had an uncomfortable feeling," writes McLaren, "that the portrait of Jesus I found in the New Testament didn't fit with the images of Jesus in the church." Out of that nagging discomfort arose this ground-breaking book. He writes, "I'd like to share my search with you, and invite you to be a part of it. I don't want to spoil the ending, but I'll let you in on this: the farther I go on this search, the more inspired, moved, challenged, shocked, and motivated I become about the secret message of Jesus."

Parents are the biggest influence on the lives of teenagers--a fact that research has proved again and again. Yet interactions with parents can be one of the trickiest areas for a youth worker to navigate well.

Great youth ministries are passionate about helping parents--the key influence on teenage faith--succeed in their God-given roles. That's the foundational message of The Skinny on Parents, which will lead you toward a place where you focus more of your energy on resourcing, equipping, partnering with, and empowering parents.

Parents are not the enemy. Ignoring them will diminish the impact of your ministry. Most parents struggle with fears but also want help. And you can come alongside them to partner in helping teenagers fully step into a life of faith.

This book is filled with practical ideas that will energize your ministry to parents and families. And if you as a youth worker provide help in a way that allows parents to feel more equipped and confident, then everyone wins: families, teenagers, and your youth ministry!

Take a look around at the brokenness in this world and its spiritual poverty. Jesus wants to change all of that, and he's looking for teenagers who want that change to start in them.

Youth worker, that's where you come in! When your students serve others, they're serving Jesus. Serving helps teenagers draw closer to Jesus and become more like him. And serving creates opportunities to talk about Jesus and share his amazing good news.

Ultimately, every act of genuine Christian service points to Jesus' act of service on the cross.

The Skinny on Service unpacks the powerful reasons why it's important for you and your students to serve others, but you'll also get page after page of practical ideas on how to serve. You'll be equipped to help teenagers discover
the joy of serving faithfully "before," even if they don't personally get to see the fruit "after."

Teenagers aren't just looking for a great youth worker--they're looking for a Christ-follower who is leaving footsteps they can step into. And when you lead the way by serving, that's exactly what you're doing.

A youth ministry needs a solid group of volunteers to be truly effective. We youth workers all know this--but how do we make it happen?

Many of us don't do much when it comes to mobilizing volunteers and equipping them for ministry. Our plate is already full, and building a great team sounds like yet another task to add to the list.

But what if your efforts to mobilize and equip volunteers actually lightened your schedule? What if this investment of time actually paid back double, quadruple, or even tenfold?

The Skinny on Volunteers will help you concentrate on three simple skills that will help you mobilize and equip leaders: recruiting, keeping, and training volunteers.

Yes, volunteers take time. But you'll discover the rewards of investing in a team of people who will love teenagers, connect with them, and disciple them.

Everything was going fine . . . until it wasn't. It took an actual breakdown during a funeral for Rev. Junius Dotson to realize he needed a reset. As he recalls his own journey through grief, depression, burnout, and emotional breakdown, Dotson passionately calls for a Soul Reset for pastors, church leaders, and all disciples of Jesus Christ.

This is a 7-week churchwide study for everyone who moves at breakneck speed through their daily lives, often relying on their own strength to bring God's kingdom on earth. Jesus shows us a different vision of what kingdom work looks like. It's a balance of work, rest, play, worship, exercise, and eating well--spiritual practices that keep our souls healthy as we do the work of the church in the world.

Soul Reset is a call for all of Jesus' disciples to reset and reorder their lives around spiritual practices, to learn to walk through difficult seasons with our souls connected to the source of Living Water so that we don't burn out or break down.

In a diverse society where tolerance is preached and practiced as the highest of cultural values, it's tough for teenagers to find "acceptable" ways to share their faith. In fact, "Christianity" is now one of the more polarizing words in the Western world--followers of Jesus are known far more for what we're against than what we're for. And that makes it extra hard for students to engage their friends and classmates in conversations about the most important thing in their life.

What we are for is a person--his name is Jesus. And Jesus is not only our salvation, but the most compelling person who's ever walked the earth. But that epic truth is overshadowed by the distractions surrounding Christianity's "public face"--it's been turned into a political/social/moral word, not a simple description of Christ-followers.

In the student edition of his bestselling book Speaking of Jesus, author Carl Medearis maps out a path that will forever change the way teenagers think about "sharing my faith." Using strategies and ideas gleaned from his decades of experience as a missionary in the Middle East, Carl will give students a new vocabulary and a new way of engaging the people in their life--they will discover the freedom "speaking of Jesus" brings, flavoring all their interactions with his compelling prese

American Christian Women under 40 are being theologically trained in unprecedented numbers, accessing leadership in their communities through both orthodox and unorthodox avenues, and balancing the roles of professional, wife, mother, girlfriend, and friend. With all of the perceived progress, why do they feel like their young voices still aren't being heard? And if they found the courage to speak, what would they want to say?

The latest book in the I Speak For Myself series addresses the experiences of faith, gender, and identity that remain taboo for American Christian Women Under 40. Is it our desire to remain childless in a Catholic tradition that largely defines women by their ability to reproduce? Is it our struggle with pornography in an evangelical subculture that addresses it only as the temptation of unsatisfied men? From masturbation, miscarriage, and menstruation to ordination, co-habitation, and immigration, this collection of essays explores the most provocative topics of faith left largely unspoken in 21st century American faith life. For women and their partners, faith leaders and their members, historians and their students, this book documents the voices of young Christian women and their refusal to be silent any longer.
