The assets on hand to them are overwhelmingly conceived, validated and
produced solely within the suburbs, and produce little to undergo at the realities of
urban formative years tradition. therefore, early life ministries in huge towns have
tended to settle onto one in all 3 paths--a conventional paradigm that
jealously guards the religious formation of its teenagers, a liberal
paradigm that concentrates completely on own development, and an activist
paradigm that galvanizes adolescence round the social matters surrounding
them. whereas every one of those emphases is critical, too frequently they are
pursued to the forget of the others, and the city church suffers.
Fernando Arzola Jr. proposes a fourth approach, a prophetic paradigm that
integrates the 3 and cultivates children who're spiritually rooted,
emotionally mature and attentive to the wishes in their group. In this
pace-setting publication he attracts on numerous disciplines--from biology to
sociology, from psychology to theology--to advisor city adolescence staff into
an powerful and transformational ministry to youth.
