Publisher's Summary

Today, everybody seems to be trying desperately to pander to young people in the church, even as growing numbers flee from it. This is largely because the church today does not expect what it ought to from children or their parents, and this can be attributed, at least in part, to a flawed concept of youth ministry. This need not, and should not, be so.  

Brief but striking, this audiobooklet by Dr. Chris Schlect traces the historical origins of present-day youth ministry and sifts through the people and ideas that contributed to its development. It also provides an honest, biblical starting place for discussing the nature and purpose of youth ministry. 

Above all, the intent of this audiobook is to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers.

this book should be titled Anti- Youth Program

This book misrepresents scripture and modern society. It's main push is that there should be no Youth Pastor or Program, but that Fathers should be the only ones teaching teens. Problem is that in today's society the Father is absent in a large percentage of homes. this books aim to teach a father that doesn't exist is an abandonment of the fatherless which we are commanded to take care of. kids in youth groups without Fathers at home make up a large percentage of teens that need guidance. This book makes it sound like it was a sin for youth programs to have started at all. There is no sin in starting a ministry as a need for it arises in our changing society.
