Youth Matter is a book that seeks to bring truth to how youth should view their lives. Many are bombarded with conflicting messages from all directions about how they should understand themselves and the world around them. Youth Matter provides an answer to how they should embrace this time of their lives as development, as well as how they can impact the world around them to the glory of God.
Lots of authors write about teenagers, but very few write to teenagers. Daryl Jones has become one of those rare writers going straight to the teenagers themselves. I applaud his work, and I recommend Youth Matter to all those who want to see teenagers look like Jesus and join Him in changing their world. Teenagers need to read a book that would say: "You do not have to wait ... to serve the LORD and make an impact for the Kingdom of God. You can do it right now!" - Richard Ross, PhD, Professor of Student Ministry at Southwestern Seminary
