Unpacking Scripture in Youth Ministry focuses on how to teach and present the Bible in the lives of teenagers. Andrew Root argues that teens are constant interpreters -- always asking the questions, who am I? and what do others think of me? -- and so youth ministers must teach them to interpret the actions of God as revealed in the Bible. This view is different than teaching biblical knowledge -- memory verses and Bible facts -- and it's different than teaching them to interpret the Bible themselves. Rather, they are to view the Bible as a tool for interpreting God's actions and then respond with their own actions.
