Engaging the Soul of Youth Culture:
Bridging Teen Worldviews and Christian Truth
by Walt Mueller
NEW! Download the Discussion/Study Guide for Engaging the Soul of Youth Culture
Thanks for visiting the online home of my book, Engaging the Soul of Youth Culture: Bridging Teen Worldviews To Christian Truth. Here you'll find a categorized list of additional resources, articles, and links that I trust will enrich and expand your understanding of the book's message. We'll be adding to this site on a regular basis, so be sure to come back and visit from time to time. In addition, we'll be adding a discussion guide that you can use to talk about the book in a small group or training setting.
As you can see, this site is categorized by chapters. Just click on the chapter title and you'll find a list of helpful support materials related in some way to that chapter's content. In the appendices section I have included four examples of the "Walk Through Athens" paradigm that's the subject of Chapter 9. We'll be adding other articles on pop culture icons to this section in the future.
