One of My New Favorite Youth Ministry Books
I just finished reading Benjamin T. Conner's Amplifying Our Witness: Giving Voice to Adolescents with Developmental Disabilities. This is one of my new favorite Youth ministry books! And It's got to be my new favorite "missional theology" book too! Drawing from the best minds in practical theology and missional theology (including Richard Osmer, Andrew Root, John Swinton, and Darrell Guder), Ben Conner takes a huge step toward the construction of a theological rationale for youth ministry that includes those who are not subject to development or the common expectations which adults without disabilities extend toward adolescents. If you read books about youth ministry, immediately add this one to your list. It deserves to be read and wrestled with.
