This book provides psychological, anthropological, cultural, missiological and Spiritual aspects of youth ministry as it provides practical and theoretical issues on the challenges that teens face in every culture today. It specifically provides an African pespective. However, there are five other distinct perspectives that the author conveys in this book. The book is adescriptive analysis of one national church's attempt to do right by its youth, but it is much more than that. It is a guidebook for all those who work with youth in crisis, whose ministries try valiantly to address teens with the moral and ethical dilemmas of the twenty-first century from places of oppression and social devaluation. It is a call for transforming the training of youth ministers in Africa and throughout the world. And it is a book with heart: a work borne of one pastor's love for and dedication to the struggling teens he has encountered in his ministries in his homeland and in the United States. Read it with your mind, but also with your heart, and its wisdom and compassion will become evident.
