Hurt 2.0: Inside the World of Today's Teenagers

Chap Clark

Paperback 2011-06-01

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.? ??"As an advocate for kids for over twenty years, I have watched things change since I was in school. Thankfully, this book made me face what I intuitively knew was real but pretended wasn't: The youth of our culture have been deeply wounded by our collective neglect and adult-driven self-focus. Young people need adults to understand what they are going through and people to care about them without a personal agenda. This book was very helpful to me, and my attitude toward teens will never be the same."
--Doug Fields, pastor to students, Saddleback Church*??"This book does a great job of framing the issues affecting adolescents. It provided me with some powerful insights. No wonder adolescents identify with the movies I have been making-the characters are on the same journey of trying to find hope and authenticity. This book is a great look inside the adolescent world, the world beneath the one exposed to adults."*
--Ralph Winter, producer of Star Trek IV and VI and X-Men*??"For years my burden has been to enter the inside world of people with the passion of Christ. Clark has done it with adolescents. I predict Hurt will become the book to read for all who care about the spiritual development of teens."*
--Larry Crabb, New Way Ministries; author of Soul Talk??"Clark gives evidence in this book as to why he is one of the brightest figures in the field of youth ministry. Hurt provides more insight into what young people feel and how to deal with their feelings than almost any other book that will come your way. This is an award-winning volume."
--Tony Campolo, Eastern University*???"Based on solid research and years of insightful observation, Clark's Hurt 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'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 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."*
