Overview

Beginning with the class of 2000, A new generation is coming of age. These youth are bombarded with the ever-deteriorating popular media which offers the same message in a thousand ways: nothing matters. They are being reared in the broken homes of those raised in the 1960s, the "me generation." And we are seeing the results of the mistakes these parents have made.

How can parents, ministers, teachers and friends help these teenagers grow close to Jesus?

Wendy Zoba has been there as a parent answering the hard questions when teens want to press the limits of freedom. She has practical ideas for navigating teenagers through the ever-present consumer culture and nurturing a faith that they can pass on to the next generation.

The author has studied what experts are saying about the millennials. She has also conducted her own research, interviewing and surveying teenagers for Christianity Today as well as holding an all-day forum with teenagers of different social and ethnic backgrounds. As a result of their discussions about the world and the church, the teens developed a worship service that has much to suggest to the church at large.

Is there hope for the next generation? Yes. This book shows us how we can help to nurture that hope in our youth.
