A few months ago a very nice person approached me and thanked me for writing my book The Theological Turn in Youth Ministry. I was moved by their kind words. The person then said, keeping the conversation going, “I was thankful for the book because I’ve been saying for years that we just need to get kids to read Paul Tillich.” I stopped for a second, assuming the person was kidding, but inside the awkward few second of silence it became clear there was no jest in this remark. So I asked, “Why Tillich?” Confidently the person responded, “Because kids need theology!”
