Quick Overview:

In the back of your mind, there’s always that nagging question “Is this really how I should teach teens to engage the Bible?” Andrew Root shows youth ministers how to teach teens to use the Bible as a tool to interpret the actions of God that they can respond to with their own actions.
 

Unpacking Scripture in Youth Ministry focuses on how to teach and present the Bible in the lives of teenagers. Andrew Root argues that teens are constant interpreters – always asking the questions, who am I? and what do others think of me? – and so youth ministers must teach them to interpret the actions of God as revealed in the Bible. This view is different than teaching biblical knowledge –  memory verses and Bible facts – and it’s different than teaching them to interpret the Bible themselves. Rather, they are to view the Bible as a tool for interpreting God’s actions and then respond with their own actions.
