Overview

Y is the generation of tattoos, cell phones, social networking, and iPods. It is the generation of authenticity, social justice, racial diversity, and community. But it is also the generation of broken homes, school shootings, immense performance pressure, loneliness, self-indulgence, and insecurity. Christians have largely failed to bring restoration to this 70 million member group of young people. What are we missing? And what are the consequences if it doesn't change?

Foregoing formulas, models, and snappy acronyms (which don't work), Josh James Riebock offers readers a journey deep into the soul of a generation that is slowly being transformed from within. Whether pastors, volunteers, church leaders, friends, or members of generation Y themselves, readers will value this honest and hopeful look at restoring a broken generation with the life-changing power of the Gospel.

    Loved this. Wow.

    I picked up this book several years ago after Josh spoke at my college, and it has been one of the best books that I have ever bought.
    It hit at the spots in my soul that had felt broken and reminded me of the people I have met in my life that walked along side of me as I healed.
    It challenged me to be a person that lives authentically and that seeks to bring healing to those that are hurting. It reminded me of what I can do to help those around me.
    Truly a life-changing book.

    Met him

    I recently went to a seminar of his. It really changed my life and inspired me. I would recommend anything of Josh Riebock's. He really went through so much- his parents died within a month of each other.
