Overview

Enjoy these SAMPLE pages from The Post-Church Christian-

A
Baby Boomer and a Millennial... a father and a son... a conversation about the church...
a misunderstanding waiting to happen... right? Drawing on experience in missions,
pastoral work, and higher education-Moody Bible Institute president, Paul Nyquist,
and his son, Carson Nyquist, will lead us on an honest, thoughtful, and dangerous
expedition toward The Disconnect. That space, often filled with awkward silences
and clenched jaws, that exists between the two largest generations in our world
today.

The differences are myriad. Millennials value: Raw reality. Authenticity.
A missional focus. Questioning everything. Community living. Contentment with ambiguity-both
scripturally and morally. Boomers value: Doctrinal purity and clarity. Traditional
values. Consumerism. Corporate Ladder Climbing. Bigger is Better. Evangelism of
the Lost. Classic lines of authority.

Rather than judging each other on the
culture we come from-this book will open a dialogue between generations that will
have a great effect on churches, ministries, businesses, and families. Both generations
will be heard-but will both listen?
