Global Youth Culture: The Spiritual Hunger of the Largest Unreached Culture Today (Paperback)
Global Youth Culture is a powerful look at how to reach the next generation for Jesus across the globe. It is a call for the millennial generation to join the worldwide missions force to reach their peers.The Global Youth Culture represents the predominant and mainstream culture of young people in every city around the world. To reach them and challenge such a predominant and opposing mindset in our society today, we desperately need God's power.Following the journey of missionary and musician Luke Greenwood, the stories in Global Youth Culture demonstrate the gospel at work in some of the most unlikely places. Working with Steiger International, Greenwood has witnessed to young people in clubs in Russia, hostile crowds in Zurich, nominal Muslims in Turkey, transgender prostitutes in S o Paulo and more.From the perspective of frontline missionary involvement, Greenwood describes the spiritual need of the global generation and the challenges this brings to missions today. Through his many stories, of street evangelism, Greenwood offers a combination of social analysis and insight, apologetical and biblical teaching, and examples of missionary models that work. Global Youth Culture draws from and quotes the works of Francis Schaeffer, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Timothy Keller, Zygmunt Bauman, James W. Sire, Terry Eagleton and others. In the gritty stories of frontline missionary work you see Greenwood's courage and faithfulness bear fruit as hardened youth find hope in Jesus. Greenwood draws from Lindsay Olesberg's The Bible Study Handbook to provide discipleship tools and equip the reader to take evangelism to the next level-from witness to relationship. Complete with an appendix on how to have a Bible study to examples of Bible studies, Global Youth Culture will inspire and motivate you to reach the global youth and equip them to overcome the world. Luke Greenwood grew up the son of British missionaries to Brazil, and currently lives in Wroclaw, Poland, with his wife Ania and their two children. Luke serves as the European Director for Steiger, a mission organisation dedicated to reaching and discipling the Global Youth Culture for Jesus. Having worked with the mission for 17 years in places like London and S o Paulo, in more recent years Luke has helped establish Steiger teams in Poland, Germany, Finland, Portugal, Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia. His vision is to see Jesus proclaimed to young people all over the European continent. Luke teaches at the Steiger Mission School on the topics of Evangelism and Discipleship in the Global Youth Culture and travels the globe to speak on missions, challenging people to live a radical faith and courageously engage the Global Youth Culture with the gospel.
