  •     I needed this book for a Youth Ministry class and it is a good one. I enjoyed the many anecdotes throughout, it helped to get you through the slower parts. It is a text book but an enjoyable one overall.
  •     This textbook is for my class in college, but it has some really sweet ideas and is packed full of information. I would read this outside of class, so that means it is pretty good.
  •     Very good book! I first had to read parts of it for a class on youth ministry, and now I keep it on my shelf to reference. Robbins has some great insights and advice, whether you are the youth minister or a youth helper or just a church member!
