More than 60 percent of young people who went to church as teens drop out after high school. This is a striking and alarming statistic. 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, ages 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. He then offers suggestions on how to help young people develop and maintain a vibrant faith that they embrace rather than toss away.

It was a real easy book to listen to especially to acquire the information. It was a part of my Automobile University curriculum and I loved it. Listening on my IPad I was able to bookmark thost parts of the book that I wanted to go back to.
The six reason why the Mosaics (ages 18-29) disconnect from the church. They were reasons I (as a Baptist pastor) had not considered but were quite valid. He also discusses the generational differences between the groups in the church and provides some good strategies on how to resolve those differences.
The section where Kinneman talks about information access. He lifts up an example of watching movies in the 70s vs the access to movies today. It was a stark contrast between boomers and mosaics.
The audible was, to me, so good that I went and got the e-book for my Kindle app.
great info presented with lots of solid data, the continuity of anecdotes/interviews is very helpful to frame the points that Kinneman makes.
Very enjoyable and insightful book on how the Millennial/Mosaic generation thinks and why they are disconnecting from the Church. As a Millennial, I found the observations and insights indicative of my own thinking and experience. The author doesn't just identify what's wrong with the way the Church is neglecting or abusing the next generation of believers, but also offers Gospel centered direction on how to communicate the Truth of Christ and structure Church relationships in a way that truly represents Jesus instead of the sleepy traditions and shallow faith that currently prevails.
You Lost Me is an insightful and deep look at why 18-29 year olds leave church. Must reading for anyone interested in the future of the Church in America.
Lots of statistics...Good information to challenge the way we think about church. Shows the importance of making disciples in our generation. Really good information.
I am a retired parish pastor who loves to learn the whats and whys of life. I love what we are learning about mindfulness and laughter.
It was well read and easy to listen to. The information shared was communicated in a very logical and helpful mannor.
Tough news to know but help for ministry.
The best info from the best researchers and the best contributors. If you are trying to find out (like me) why our teens are stepping away from faith this book is give some of the best info i've heard (read)... Love it!!
understanding that the reason our teenagers start to leave the church is not just a quick one time fix.
