Overview

You Lost Me: Why Young Christians Are Leaving Church...and Rethinking Faith by David Kinnaman, Aly Hawkins

Close to 60 percent of young people who went to church as teens drop out after high school. Now the bestselling author of unChristian trains his researcher's eye on these young believers. Where Kinnaman's first book unChristian showed the world what outsiders aged 16-29 think of Christianity, You Lost Me shows why younger Christians aged 16-29 are leaving the church and rethinking their faith.

Based on new research, You Lost Me shows pastors, church leaders, and parents how we have failed to equip young people to live "in but not of" the world and how this has serious long-term consequences. More importantly, Kinnaman offers ideas on how to help young people develop and maintain a vibrant faith that they embrace over a lifetime.

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.

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

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.
