Overview

Today, most people 18-25 do not see themselves as adults, and they know they are not prepared for adult roles. Spiritually, socially, and emotionally, they are underdeveloped. Even regions of their brains are underdeveloped.

These emerging adults are in a holding pattern related to vocation, life direction, and marriage. But they also are stuck spiritually. The faith that characterizes most church teenagers is almost entirely me centered. And it is a "faith" that usually crumbles after high school.

As a parent, you stand at a crossroads. If you repeat the parenting approaches of the past, your children may well become 20-somethings similar to those today-living in a never, never land between the teenage years and adulthood.

Or you can seek the wisdom of the Holy Spirit and parent in fresh new ways. Those fresh approaches are the focus of this book. Soon you may see your own high school graduates well on their way to adulthood, deeply in love with Christ, and wanting nothing more than His glory.
