Jonathan Rundman is a 47-year-old musician who has toured across the United States for the past 25 years. He’s played national youth gatherings, churchwide assemblies, and the Grace Gathering for the ELCA, and he has created original music for several seminaries. But, he says, it wasn’t until 2016 that he had an inkling that he might have a call to the ministry of word and sacrament.

Andrew Root’s book, “Exploding Stars, Dead Dinosaurs, and Zombies: Youth Ministry in the Age of Science,” deserves a spot on your summer reading list.
