Learn how to engage with inner city African American young men for Christ.

Not Forsaken: Growing up Black, Male and Christian in the Hood encapsulates principles author Chris McNair gleaned from successfully working with at-risk African American boys in the inner city in over thirty years of ministry. This book teaches how youth workers can address social, emotional, physical and spiritual issues facing young black men in the city. It is about building a relational ministry among black youth, centered on instilling a sense of identity in Christ and provides a study curriculum to use with the young men themselves.

In addition to in-depth content from the Leader Guide, the study sessions contains everything needed to begin to equip leaders and guide a group through the study including session plans, activities, and discussion questions.
