Dan Kimball says this about Jonathan's new book:
"This book seriously is one which I believe could help shape
and inspire the future of youth ministry evangelism. Jonathan is not afraid to ask the
hard uncomfortable questions and doesn't ignore the elephants we normally do about
youth evangelism. But, despite the uncomfortable reality he raises, he gives such
practical advice and, most of all, hope for the Gospel being communicated to youth."
-Dan Kimball, author of The Emerging Church and
They Like Jesus, but not the Church
