Youth ministry and Bonhoeffer : finding a forefather -- Part 1. The history of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the youth worker. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the youth worker -- The origins of the youth worker -- The fracture of the idyllic : the death of Walter and the adolescence of Dietrich Bonhoeffer -- From a youth to doing youth ministry : the theological in sanctorum communio -- Tears for Mr. Wolf : Barcelona and after -- The child as eschatological : back to Berlin and on to New York -- Back to Berlin--again -- They killed their last teacher! : the wedding confirmation class -- The younger generation and the Führer : into the political -- "Eight theses on youth work" : in London exile -- Finkenwalde : from youth ministry into intentional community -- Back to youth ministry -- Toward a destiny : from youth pastor to spy -- Part 2. A youth workers' guide to Discipleship and Life together. Youth ministry and Discipleship -- The youth worker and Life together.
Summary: The youth ministry focus of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's life is often forgotten or overlooked, even though he did much work with young people and wrote a number of papers, sermons, and addresses about or for the youth of the church. However, youth ministry expert Andrew Root explains that this focus is central to Bonhoeffer's story and thought. Root presents Bonhoeffer as the forefather and model of the growing theological turn in youth ministry. By linking contemporary youth workers with this epic theologian, the author shows the depth of youth ministry work and underscores its importance in the church. He also shows how Bonhoeffer's life and thought impact present-day youth ministry practice.
