Product description

From the Back Cover

Today's relentless, consumer culture---dominated by popular media's emphasis on bigger, better, and more, and catering to teenagers every want and desire---is leaving our youth adrift in a sea of conflicting messages. Messages that every youth worker must be able to decode and redirect away from the material world towards helping young people become who God created them to be: givers instead of receivers, servers instead of consumers. Consuming Youth is for any adult who recognizes that following Jesus means leading young people through the pitfalls of consumer culture, helping them discover vocation---where their great gladness meets a world's great need, and unleashing the kingdom of God on earth.

He is an MA graduate of Providence Theological Seminary and currently works as the National Training Director for YFC Canada and is on staff at st. benedict's table.
