Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Jay Wise
Youth workers looking for innovative ways to connect with teens often use television to reach their intended audience. Beginning with an overview of how to acquire the suggested clips (including download, purchase, and rental), edit material, and maximize each segment's effectiveness, this helpful resource includes information on copyright and fair use issues, the importance of previewing each clip for content, and avoiding legal uncertainty by obtaining an umbrella license. Each episode includes suggested themes, a synopsis of the show, brief character bios, and Bible references. The authors, veteran youth ministers, take clips from current popular television offerings like Desperate Housewives, The Office, My Name is Earl, and Ugly Betty and pepper the spots with catchy titles, specific running times, and discussion questions suitable for a variety of teen events, religious or secular. Shows span the spectrum from animation to reality shows and are suitable for gals, guys, and families alike. Although written from a Christian perspective, each "clip study" focuses on real-life issues common to young adults regardless of faith background (or lack thereof), including addiction, communication, poverty, lifestyle options, tolerance, and sexuality. Organized both by topic and scripture reference, the book's consistent layout (show synopses and character bios are the same for each episode), allows readers to choose topics without reading from cover to cover. This resource offers a thought-provoking, tech-savvy approach that is perfect for counselors, ministers, teachers, and other adults looking to engage teens in their communities. Reviewer: Jay Wise
