Unpacking Scripture in Youth Ministry

By Andrew Root



Andrew Root has authored and coauthored some of the most engaging and important books on youth ministry in the last 10 years. Here is another one of his engaging and thought provoking books. Unpacking Scripture in Youth Ministry is the third book of four from a series entitled A Theological Journey Through Youth Ministry.

four book series


Book one: Taking Theology to Youth Ministry

Book two: Taking the Cross to Youth Ministry

Book three: Unpacking Scripture in Youth Ministry

Book four: Unlocking Mission and Eschatology in Youth Ministry


In this series of books the reader follows the narrative of Nadia, a youth worker trying to understand and teach students about God, the Bible, Salvation and Mission. Unpacking Scripture in Youth Ministry focuses on Nadia discovering what it might look like to teach youth the Bible today.

It’s a book worth reading because:

–  It’s narrative helps to unpack the theological in a more engaging way

–  It’s brief in size (114 pages) but deeply insightful

–  It builds up a model of teaching the Bible that may actually get your youth reading their Bibles.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who cares for young people and desires them to have a reason to engage the Bible.
