Was the book of Revelation penned by the crazy uncle in the family of Bible writers? You try to convince yourself that the apostle john is just another New Testament writer–kindly, gentle, loving. You know…normal. But he’s just so weird! Most of the time you have no idea what John is talking about in his revelation. When you must interact with his wild, otherworldly book, you escape as soon as you can to familiar, saner Bible texts. Like Matthew’s Gospel or one of Paul’s letters–after all, they straight-up tell you what Jesus did and what you should do! Yet Creative Bible Lessons in Revelation will quickly convince you and your students that St. John wasn’t so much a crazy guy as he was a visionary, inspirational, and worshipful guy! And you don’t have to subscribe to any pre- or post-eschatology theory in order to learn all sorts of good stuff from the apostle. So while these 12 sessions–complete and ready-to-teach–won’t help your students identify who the antichrist is or give them the coordinates of Armageddon’s opening salvos, they will, however, acquaint your youth group with the mysterious nature of Revelation, then demonstrate how these apocalyptic principles actually provide practical application for us today.

Here’s what’s inside every session:
-Detailed overviews for clear, convenient prepping.
-Intriguing activities and games-with-a-point that introduce that session’s topic.
-Hardcore Bible studies and provocative questions that trigger dialogue in both large and small groups.
-Application exercises that translate John’s visions into practical, attainable actions and attitudes for students’ daily lives.

Plus, you’ll get these bonuses:
-Let’s Get Theological–lite intros to the various interpretations of the reactions to the events Revelation predicts
-More More More–helpful supplements to activities and discussions
-Worthy of Worship–top-drawer suggestions for turning ordinary youth meetings into extraordinary times of praising God.

Questions about the future lurk in everyone’s minds–especially in the minds of teenagers. Now is your chance to explore the book of Revelation with your students–to glimpse at the never-ending worship to come, to grab hold of God’s promises and his mercy, and to bring some ease to troubled hearts.

Helping Our Students Understand Hard Times

Original photo by Michael Dorokhov. I left the funeral. People were sobbing over the loss of Jeremy, a teenager who was driving and texting. Not only was his own death tragic, but it was also even sadder because Jeremy had crossed the medium and piled into another vehicle, killing both passengers. Not only could I…

Why Church Kids Must Go Bad

I’m a book nerd. I never thought I would be such a person. As a matter of fact, most of the people that knew me in high school would never guess that I would become such a book person, or ever even finish reading a book for that matter. But I am. As a book nerd, one of the things I enjoy most is walking through bookstores or rooms filled with books. When I was restless in seminary, bored, or needed a break, I would walk through the used theological bookstore in the town where I lived.

So when I was at all three National Youth Workers Conventions last fall, I would walk the book tables, just looking at them (and of course, I must confess as all other authors should, I was also checking to see how quickly piles of my book were disappearing. I’m not only a book nerd, but also an ambitiously sinful one).

Your Time Is Now – Luke 22:14-16

By Adam McLane  When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. And he said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God.” — Luke 22:14-16



As Jesus ended his earthly ministry he shared an intimate meal with his crew. These people had walked with Jesus, tried out ministry, witnessed some of the most amazing moments in the planet's history, and stuck with Jesus. (Remember, some didn't; John 6:66)

Virtual Reality = Virtual Community = Virtual Relationships

“[The use of technology] is especially important when it comes to the ultimate meaning of communion. Technology has created what we call virtual reality. It can give you a sense of intimacy. But whether it is real intimacy or not is quite another matter. I think this is where the Christian understanding of community enables us to look beyond what modern technology can offer, because the Christian understanding of real communion is embodied communion. Communion means bodily presence. That's at the heart of our incarnational theology, God coming to us in person; it's the meaning of the resurrection of the body. So no matter what virtual reality technology can create, it will never be an adequate substitute for communion.” Simon Chan, Christianity Today Magazine
