For those interested in youth ministry, emerging models of "doing church" together, postmodern ministry, or ancient prayer practices: there's a wonderful new book out by Mark Yaconelli, the director for the Youth Ministry Spirituality Project. It's called Contemplative Youth Ministry and it's his vision, world view, and model for youth ministry based on ancient forms of prayer, contemplation and practicing the presence of God.

I don't just recommend this to youth pastors but anyone who is interested in engaging young and old with the ancient practices of the church.

This book is currently "on tour" right now in the blogosphere and you can check out different blogger's thoughts on this wonderful gem, including Gavin who is blogging on it today. I'm up in a few days.
