Hurt 2.0: Inside the World of Today's Teenagers by Chap Clark
Hurt provided a vivid and insightful view into the world of today's teenagers. Now leading youth ministry expert Chap Clark substantially updates and revises his groundbreaking bestseller (over 55,000 copies sold). Hurt 2.0 features a new chapter on youth at society's margins and new material on social networking and gaming. Each chapter has been thoroughly revised with new research, statistics, quotations, and documentation.
"Based on solid research and years of insightful observation, Clark's Hurt 2.0 serves to open the eyes of parents, youth workers, pastors, educators, and youth-serving professionals to realities from which the church has too often chosen to look away. Hurt 2.0's 'world beneath' is a world we must visit if we hope to be significant people through which the gospel speaks. If we hope to point the hopeless to true hope, these realities must be faced, understood, and addressed. Hurt 2.0 offers a deep and penetrating look into the contemporary adolescent experience that will serve us well as we work to have a prophetic, preventive, and redemptive influence on the world of today's youth culture." -- Walt Mueller, president, Center for Parent/Youth Understanding
