Reviews - What do our customers think?
What an invaluable Christian youth resource !  Feb 7, 2008
As the author I am not going to review my own book except to say that it was written because colleagues requested that I share and describe the activities I have developed as a youth leader since the early 1970's. Some of the described activities have been used annually since then.

What I really wish to share is a note I received from Junior High Sunday School teacher, Cathy Murray, who purchased the book last fall, not on this site.com, but at a local book signing event. Cathy writes ...

I have recently purchased the book Not the Same Old, Done-it-before Youth Meetings by Tim Ferguson. I picked up the book the day of Tim's book signing. My purpose for purchasing the book was two fold:

* Tim is a member of my church and I wanted to support his endeavor

* I planned on thumbing through it and perhaps pick up some ideas to aid me in teaching Sunday school.

Little did I realize what an invaluable Christian youth resource this book would become to me. As I was looking through the book, I realized how it tied in with our curriculum (I teach the 6th, 7th and 8th grade class). The best part of it is the concrete examples and the step-by-step lesson plans that I just have to follow. I use this book, the Bible, the curriculum and a book on parables and I have one solid, exciting curriculum. Tim did all the work and I just have to follow the lessons he prepared. Currently, we are making our way through Who Do You Say I Am? The kids are interested and so am I as I hear their feedback and their understanding of who they think Jesus is.

I cannot wait to use some of the Christian youth lessons and activities Tim has put in the book. I think this would be a great addition to any Sunday school as well as Christian Youth program.

Wow, what a resource!!!!  Jan 26, 2008
I've been a Sunday School Teacher since 1998 and have assisted during many youth group activities. It is always a challenge to discover ideas that are not only simply for fun but which also teach the gospel message and engage the imaginations of our young people.

"Not the Same Old, Done-it-Before Youth Meetings" does this. It has lots of fun activities but, much more importantly, it addresses the need to challenge the minds and hearts of our young people. I was impressed by our young people's response to several of the scenario's in the "Jury Speaks" chapter. The Cosmology and Genesis One lesson opened the minds of not only our young people but of myself to the remarkable similarity between the first chapters of Genesis and the most modern of scientific theories.

With 350 pages of ideas, youth leaders may wonder where to start but the multiple indexes by topic and by bible verse - really help us focus on finding the right activity for the meeting at hand. So far, everything has worked. I recommend this book for any Christian educators but particularly for youth group leaders.

The book begins - youth want to make friends, expand their horizons and find ways to "make a difference". This book will help any youth leader, as it has helped us, attain these goals.
 
Useful Book For Youth Workers  Aug 22, 2007
As a 10 year youth worker, I am always looking for new ideas. Not the Same Old, Done-It-Before Youth meetings is full of ideas that are more than just fun - they convey a message of faith. I particularly like the activities in The Jury Speaks as well as the ideas in the chapters on the Holidays - Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Valentines Day. The indexes are very useful and help me pinpoint activities for upcoming events this fall. I highly recommend this book for both beginning and experienced youth workers.
 
just what I was looking for  Jun 28, 2007
As a youth worker of about three years "Not the Same Old Done-it-before Youth Meethings" is just what I needed. Lots of variety in events, all with a reference to scripture. The indexes make it easy to find ideas and I've already tried "Flashlight Sing" and my youth had a great time! Looking forward to trying some of the more serious activities.
