Overview

Is the church losing the next generation?

Millions of young Christians are disconnecting from church as they transition into adulthood. They're real people, not just statistics. And each one has a story to tell.

"I knew from church that I couldn't believe in both science and God, so that was it. I didn't believe in God anymore."—Mike

"When I write a song that's not used in a way that every Christian agrees on, I get hammered. What am I supposed to be using my talents for?"—Sam

"I felt like I had been punched in the stomach . . . I remember thinking on the way home, My non-Christian friends would never do that to me."—Sarah

"It just feels like the church's teaching on sexuality is behind the times."—Dennis

Now the bestselling coauthor of unChristian reveals the long-awaited results of a new nationwide study of 18- to 29-year-olds with a Christian background. Discover why so many are disengaging from the faith community, renew your hope for how God is at work in the next generation—and find out how you can join in.

Includes ideas for passing on a flourishing, deep-rooted faith from:

    A Game Changer

    I have'nt even gotten half way through this book, and my whole perspective is already being changed by it. I'm from the mosaic generation, and I know what it means to believe that church is nolonger relevant. God has used this book to speak to me on so many levels, and I'm the better for it. If you're questioning your faith and spirituality give this book a shot.

    A must-read for any church leader in a mainline denomination today.
    The book adds great clarity and insight to the one of the greatest challenges facing the church today.

    Anyone involved in ministry should check this out

    There are a growing number of books focused on the particular characteristics of the millennial generation. This is one of the better ones. They clearly outline various reasons that current young people leave the church, and what are the primary reasons. I found their discussion of science very useful. So many churches choose to ignore the topic altogether. I wish the survey data could have been presented in a more user friendly manner. This may only be a problem with the nook version. I have not read the paper version
