This past week Seth Godin wrote that real-time news is neither. He said, “Go watch an hour of cable news from a year ago… what were they yelling about that we actually care about today?”
It made me think about my field of youth ministry and the books that we clamor for and trumpet each year. Some received a LOT of press when they came out but today are rarely mentioned or discussed. Others have seemed timeless and continue to inform the field. Others may not have sold as many copies, but have a devoted following.
So, I’m curious for you, which youth ministry book has most influenced and continues to influence your work in youth ministry?
As an incentive, on Friday I will randomly select someone from the comments below to win a FREE YOUTH MINISTRY BOOK OF THEIR CHOICE!
And for every person who Tweets or ReTweets this post on Twitter that includes @TerryLinhart and a relevant hashtag in it (like #youthmin or #stumin or something from your tribe), he/she will get a second entry into the drawing.
