If I could give this book 10 stars, I would.
There are sound suggestions on how to build trust and relationships with students who are facing an awkward phase of life, realizing that not every student responds the same.
Most importantly this book will help you to show students that not only do you care about them, but Christ cares for them more than they know.
Give this book to your church's Youth Pastor, you will be glad you did.
