9780985153663: Masterpiece: The Art of Discipling Youth

Masterpiece. That's how Paul the Apostle describes us in his letter to the church in Ephesus. We are God's masterpiece. Most people never hear that phrase. Even fewer will believe it. Masterpiece: The Art of Discipling Youth uncovers the process of revealing teenagers as the masterpieces Christ created them to be. It doesn t approach discipleship with a blank slate, sketching with small groups or painting with programs. Instead it focuses on revealing the art that is already under the surface of every teenager, removing the grime of life and restoring the vibrancy of the true colors underneath.

This book is for youth workers who are tired of canned meetings geared towards the masses. Veteran youth worker Paul Martin shares his process for recognizing individual youth as what they are: God s masterpiece.

About the Author:

Paul Martin has been practicing youth ministry for nearly two decades. He shares his life with his wife Cathy and their daughters, Jane and Elizabeth. Paul's blog, beingministry.com, fleshes out youth ministry, discipleship and other ideas about serving adolescents.

Review:

I know Paul Martin as a thoughtful person and it comes as no surprise that his first book is a thoughtful one.  This is a book that will push you deeply to think differently, but this push comes with the compassion of a pastor's heart and a deep passion for the possibility of discipleship itself.  If you have an interest in discipleship this is a book you must take a look at, it will change your youth ministry.  

--Andrew Root, Olson Baalson professor of youth and family ministry and author of Taking Theology to Youth Ministry and Taking the Cross to Youth Ministry
