Look inside


Young people are more connected to technology than most adults in ministry and have a better understanding of what is possible than youth of a generation ago. To reach them, youth ministry leaders must be willing to go where teens are. This resource is designed for adults in ministry who wish to reach young people through film and television in order to engage them in meaningful conversations, activities, or prayer using the remote control as their guide.

Including movies with A-I, A-II, and A-III ratings from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops as well as ratings of G, PG, or PG-13 from the Motion Picture Association of America, Using the Remote to Channel Jesus features 50 suggested five-to-eight-minute clips that help adult leaders to use this medium to interact with youth today. This book features session suggestions on tying clips to conversation-starters, activities, and prayer, and a special index helps you tie the movie clips to themes of your choice. What more can we say but . . .

Enjoy the show!

Editorial Reviews

Catholic Library World, March, 2010

The author's unique approach gets high school students to open up and discuss the issues that trouble the adolescent soul. Topics like acceptance, choices, faith, friendship, God's will for us, honesty, sexuality, prayer, pregnancy, self-esteem, and social justice, to name but a few, are introduced by easily accessed clips from films rated A-I and A-II by the USCCB, and G, PG or PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America.

This is a practical tool for high school teachers of religion in all settings. Parents may also wish to use the film clips as discussion-starters with their own children
