    Youth Specialties/Zondervan have released the cover for our upcoming book Missional Youth Ministry: From Gathering Teenagers to Scattering Disciples which will be published in April of next year.  As I had some not-quite-nightmares about the cover turning out terribly (imagine a geometry textbook cover from senior high) I'm pleasantly surprised at the artwork.  We'll be blogging more about the book as the release date gets closer, but perhaps most important to point out today is that the book would not have been possible without the many of you who have supported, commented on, reacted against, and shared ideas with us in this space over the last four years or so.  Our hope is that the book will be another avenue to challenge some of the existing paradigms for youth ministry while also suggesting a new way forward.
