Review by Marcus
Overall Rating
I anticipated the release of this book because the first one was great. I pre-ordered this book and it met most of my expectations. It is very informative and insightful. It is great for people new to youth ministry and those that are experienced veterans. The only negative in this book that differs from the first book is the downloadable forms is one large pdf file so it is not editable. So to use it effectively, we are required to print the document and fill it out. This book would receive 5 stars if we were able to download the forms in Microsoft word and edit it so that we can use it without it being generic. (Posted on 9/29/2014)
