"With teenage attention spans decreasing as fast as new channels appear on satellite TV, it's not just a case of presenting the gospel and hoping they 'get it.' You have to step into their world rather than screaming across the generation gap," explains Steve Maltz.

Red--for those who are cynical and bored. Aim: to intrigue and provoke.
Orange--for those who like a challenge. Aim: a gentle introduction.
Yellow--for those willing to listen. Aim: to answer key questions.
Green--for those who are ready to hear. Aim: to make a clear case, sufficient for informed decision.
Blue--for groups of new Christians. Aim: to provide assurance and faith-builders.

Violet--for those ready to go deeper. Aim: to feed their minds Each talk is backed by a regularly updated website to keep text contemporaryHelps youth workers engage teens at their levelClearly presents ideas with notes on props, etc.
