Shelf Life Book Review: A Youth Worker’s Commentary on John

A Youth Worker’s Commentary on John (Vol 1)
Zondervan, 2011

Stephen M. Vantassel

This commentary is Les Christie and David Nystrom’s first in a new series that helps youth leaders connect teens with the Bible. The authors employ several teaching strategies to accomplish this goal. Focusing on John 1–8, this book challenges teens with its accessible commentary, word studies and historical details. Theological rigor is balanced with personal stories and application questions at the end of each section. The questions are often open-ended and require extended reflection. This commentary is suited for high school students and young adults.
