Mother to Son: Letters to a Black Boy on Identity and Hope (IVP) could be an excellent parent/youth at-home/small group discussion.

You could share the trailer for Materiality as Resistance: A Seven-Session Manifesto with Walter Brueggemann to spark interest in the book for a discussion group.

Nick Ripatrazone‘s Longing for an Absent God: Faith and Doubt in Great American Fiction (Broadleaf) could be interesting, on its own, and might lead to using some great American fiction in future discussions; while Laura Fabrycky‘s Keys to Bonhoeffer’s Haus: Exploring the World and Wisdom of Dietrich Bonhoeffer (also Broadleaf) might lead to deeper exploration of Bonhoeffer’s life and works.

Jonathan Catherman invites us toward self-improvement – as a whole generation! – in Becoming the Next Great Generation: Taking Our Place as Confident and Capable Adults and encourages faith formation leaders in shaping future generations in Guiding the Next Great Generation: Rethinking How Teens Become Confident and Capable Adults (both Baker Book House).
