Based on research conducted by the Barna Group, You Lost Me exposes ways the Christian community has failed to equip young adults to live "in but not of" the world--to follow Christ in the midst of profound cultural change. This wide-ranging study debunks persistent myths about young dropouts and examines the likely consequences for young adults and for the church if we maintain the status quo.
The faith journeys of the next generation are a challenge to the established church, but they can also be a source of hope for the community of faith. Kinnaman, with the help of contributors from across the Christian spectrum, offers ideas for pastors, youth leaders, parents, and educators to pass on a vibrant, lasting faith, and ideas for young adults to find themselves in wholehearted pursuit of Christ.

And yet maybe that is what has gotten us into the mess we are in today?
The author seems to think that might be the case, that perhaps the problem has become a bit more acute because we cater to what others want or what we think they want. The second half of the book looks at the six most common complaints, that the church is overprotective, shallow, anti-science, repressive, exclusive and doubtless. Some of these are interrelated in my opinion, shallow churches have to be over-protective and tend also to be anti-science.
I suppose the church will always struggle with people thinking our sexual ethics are repressive.

Download This wide- ranging study debunks persistent myths about young dropouts and examines the likely.
Though, I do think a meatier approach, and not a shallow approach to biblical sexual ethics perhaps makes it less repressive and more something that people willingly accept for their own benefit. Jesus Christ is exclusive in many ways and there is nothing that can be done about that, yet the church is often exclusive in all the wrong ways. As a professor of mine once said, the gospel is offensive but we as Christians might make sure it is the gospel that is offending and not us.
The discussion that ensues in this part of the book is great for many people to contemplate. I am currently handing this book around to people in my congregation. So often we see problems in the church and the same tired "solutions" are recommended again and again. Those solutions are often the root of the problem. One person found this helpful. This isn't the kind of book you want to breeze through. I'd pick up, read for awhile, then put it away to read others for a week.
I'd then return to read a bit more to digest. It's provoking to read his thoughts.
I'd argue that Barna's research behind this project make this book so much more than an anecdotal journey of one person. This book is really a collection of a thousands ' thoughts. David Kinnaman addresses one of the most important issues and concern for our modern day Christianity! If you have any concern about the future of Christianity in America, you need to read this book.
We've all felt it at the gut level. We've seen churches that don't represent local demographics when it comes to age diversity. But what do we do about the problem of young adults leaving the church?
As a youth pastor, this is a truly concerning issue. What's the point of my job if after they graduate from high school they graduate from church? Furthermore, if kids are leaving after they pass through my area of ministry What I like about this book is it goes beyond gut feelings and anecdotal evidence and uses hard data through the trusted research of Barna to explore these issues. It helps provide a roadmap for the future of our church by creating a better understanding of where we have failed in the recent past.
It's a pretty quick and smooth read considering the ground that is covered. I dare you to read it and not sense a need for our church to change. And to change in a positive, biblical, and possibly even more orthodox way.
A wealth of data about Millennials and their thoughts about Christianity and faith. While the Millennial generation is currently years old by most definitions they are born from , this book will help you understand high schoolers, too, which are part of Gen Z. If you are a parent, this book will help you with your teens and twentysomethings. While I don't believe in the Gospel by focus group or opinion polling, this book brings to light attitudes an older generation needs to know about Millennials or Mosiacs, as Kinnaman refers to them so we can all have greater understanding.
