Matt Murphy and Brad Widstrom’s book 99 Thoughts on Caring for Your Youth Group: From Coffee Shop Counseling to Crisis Care is an excellent resource that every youth leader ought to read and reference repeatedly. That said, it is not merely a handbook for youth pastors who desire to grow in their role as caregivers. Indeed, it is an effective eye-opener for anyone interacting with today’s teenagers.

The significant issues facing teens in contemporary culture (e.g., drugs, alcohol, domestic abuse, unexpected pregnancies, suicide, bullying, cutting, sexting, and school shootings) justify Murphy and Widstrom’s rather startling claim that “In today’s society, all kids are at-risk” (12). The bold manner in which the authors consistently confront these all-too-prevalent problems is in keeping with the seriousness of the threat to the well-being of individual teenagers and the youth groups they belong to. They rightly refuse to shy away from the most difficult ministry situations or soft-pedal the stark realities that youth workers will face as they seek to disciple students satiated by the relativistic postmodern milieu. The consequence is that the book appropriately communicates the actual depth of youth ministry.

In short, if concerned Christian adults implement the clear advise contained within this youth ministry preparedness manual, they will be strategically equipped to provide Christ-like care in any situation and in so doing they will positively impact the lives of teenagers for the kingdom of God.

Nicely presented, quick read, great advice for working with kids! I volunteer with our church's Youth Group and have referred back to this book a number of times when different issues have come up with the teens.

Great book, excellent insights, and a must resource.

This useful resource for youth workers provides great wisdom in caring for students in both everyday life and through times of crisis. The book starts with encouraging youth workers to be incarnational and present in the lives of students and then provides specifics on how to care for students through different circumstances. Murphy and Widstrom do a great job of communicating that in order to provide care to students, caregivers need to be healthy and given care themselves. The "99 Thoughts" series from Group Publishing are great resources for lead youth workers to give to their teams because of the easy to read and digest format. This will be the next one that I will provide to small group leaders in our ministry.
