Additional versions



Youth Engaging Scripture is a collection of reflections on the Sunday Gospel readings for years A, B, and C of the lectionary cycle. These reflections, first developed for a peer-led Bible-sharing experience called the "YES! Youth Engaging Scripture" Initiative, help teens immerse themselves in the Scriptures and learn how God's word is relevant in their everyday lives. Parish youth ministers, catechetical leaders, high school teachers, campus ministers, and parents can use this book with teens to foster a regular practice of praying the Bible, studying the Bible, and living the Bible.

The CD includes all the Sunday reflections in a PDF document that can be copied, printed, and e-mailed as well as a complete index for finding a specific reflection without having to search through pages and pages.

Editorial reviews

Catholic Library World, March, 2008

The title of this book is misleading. It is much more than promised. It is not for teens but for those leading them. Kurtz, a religion teacher with expertise in Scripture, a youth minister and nationally recognized expert in youth ministry, found it alarming that only 20 percent of Catholic youth, as compared to 60 percent of other Christian youth, had ever read the Bible on their own. To remedy this, he has developed a plan to engage Catholic teens in Scripture by focusing on the Sunday Gospels in a way that the readings will become meaningful to them.
