Today's relentless, consumer culture-dominated by popular media's emphasis on bigger, better, and more, and catering to teenagers every want and desire-is leaving our youth adrift in a sea of conflicting messages. Messages that every youth worker must be able to decode and redirect away from the material world towards helping young people become who God created them to be: givers instead of receivers, servers instead of consumers. Consuming Youth is for any adult who recognizes that following Jesus means leading young people through the pitfalls of consumer culture, helping them discover vocation-where their great gladness meets a world's great need, and unleashing the kingdom of God on earth.^ examines the effects of consumer culture on our youth, what becoming an adult means in this modern era, and how faith communities can shape an alternative script for youth - one where an intentional, lived-out faith becomes a powerful antidote to today's consumption-obsessed culture.
