We are all teachers of the young in one setting or another, and not always in the classroom or by the words we speak. Our actions convey as much or more to others than do our words. That's why the spiritual life of all those who interact with young people is so important. This book is a remarkable down-to-earth resource for anyone who has the joy and privilege of passing the Catholic faith to those who live in a world that is preaching a gospel that is entirely different from the one that Jesus taught. Our young people today are dealing with an environment that encourages them to experiment in ways we can only imagine. Alex Basile points out how those who are troubled and confused can be identified and helped in a compassionate and understanding way. He insists on the need for creating a fruitful environment in which the young can grow in their faith. To make Christ real to those who are often very self-centered and to encourage them to reach out to others in a community of faith can be a daunting task. But it can be done. And Alex Basile shows ways in which parents, teachers and lay leaders can do just that. Most of all he shares with them his enthusiasm and love for leading others down the gentle road to Jesus.
