From places like John Piper's den, Al Mohler's office, and
Jonathan Edwards's college,
Christianity Today journalist
Collin Hansen investigates what makes today's young Calvinists

Church-growth strategies and charismatic worship have fueled the
bulk of evangelical growth in America for decades. While baby
boomers have flocked to churches that did not look or sound like
church, it seems these churches do not so broadly capture the
passions of today's twenty-something evangelicals. In fact, a
desire for transcendence and tradition among young evangelicals has
contributed to a Reformed resurgence.

For nearly two years, Christianity Today journalist
Collin Hansen visited the chief schools, churches, and conferences
of this growing movement. He sought to describe its members and ask
its leading pastors and theologians about the causes and
implications of the Calvinist resurgence. The result, Young,
Restless, Reformed
, shows common threads in their diverse
testimonies and suggests what tomorrow's church might look like
when these young evangelicals become pastors or professors.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

"Collin Hansen invites us on a voyage of discovery, learning how our restless youth are discovering anew the great doctrines of the Christian faith. Weary of churches that seek to entertain rather than teach, longing after the true meat of the Word, these young people are pursuing doctrine. Discover how God is moving among the young, the restless, and the Reformed."
Tim Challies, author, The Next Story; blogger,

"Young, Restless, Reformed is the product of some outstanding research. This book will help the reader gain valuable insight into the growing Reformed movement in America."
Jerry Bridges, author, The Pursuit of Holiness

"Collin Hansen has uncovered a fresh movement of young Christians for whom doctrine fuels evangelism, kindles passion, and transforms lives. Read it and rejoice."
David Neff, Editor-in-chief, Christianity Today media group

"A number of strategic ministries have been quietly upholding the doctrines of grace, planting churches, seeing people converted, teaching the whole counsel of God. It is time for quiet gratitude to God and earnest intercessory prayer that what has begun well will flourish beyond all human expectation."
D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"This lively account is must reading for ministry leaders working with young adults. A wake-up call to baby boomers to move beyond the superficial faith they taught their children and to grow with them in the knowledge and love of God."
Douglas A. Sweeney, Professor of Church History, Director of the Jonathan Edwards Center, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
