Just Walk With MeJ tracks a year in the life of Christian youth project e:merge in Bradford, starting with the arrival of Niki fresh-faced, full of spiritual optimism and an expert in running perky school assemblies. Yan, the project's Director knows that working here will force Niki to abandon or reform nearly all her attitudes to evangelism and quick-fix faith. But he also knows that God's grace can change even the most excluded young person. 'A bitingly honest, extremely engaging and at times laugh out loud funny account of no holds barred youth work.'
