Overview

They Like Jesus but Not the Church: Insights from Emerging Generations by Dan Kimball

Many people today, especially among emerging generations, don’t resonate with the church and organized Christianity. Some are leaving the church and others were never part of the church in the first place. Sometimes it’s because of misperceptions about the church. Yet often they are still spiritually open and fascinated with Jesus. This is a ministry resource book exploring six of the most common objects and misunderstandings emerging generations have about the church and Christianity. The objections come from conversations and interviews the church has had with unchurched twenty and thirty-somethings at coffee houses. Each chapter raises the objection using a conversational approach, provides the biblical answers to that objection, gives examples of how churches are addressing this objection, and concludes with follow-through projection suggestions, discussion questions, and resource listings.

Dan Kimball has compiled a work that is relevent to our time,and important insight for readers who want to understand the reason young adults in America today are NOT finding the "church" to be relevent to their lives or to their needs. Young people are finding their way OUT OF and not into the church and we need understand why. If we are to call ourselves servants of Christ - and that our desire is to fulfill the commission He left us with - we must BECOME relevant. We MUST feed His sheep, as Christ told Peter. We can't just go about business as usual, behind closed doors and expect people to find their way in. We must COMPEL them - and that requires some change.
