Publisher's Summary

Move over boomers, Xers, and millennials; there's a new generation - making up more than 25 percent of the US population - that represents a seismic cultural shift. Born approximately between 1993 and 2012, generation Z is the first truly post-Christian generation, and they are poised to challenge every church to rethink its role in light of a rapidly changing culture.

From the award-winning author of The Rise of the Nones comes this enlightening introduction to the youngest generation. James Emery White explains who this generation is, how it came to be, and the impact it is likely to have on the nation and the faith. Then he reintroduces us to the ancient countercultural model of the early church, arguing that this is the model Christian leaders must adopt and adapt if we are to reach members of generation Z with the Gospel. He helps listeners rethink evangelistic and apologetic methods, cultivate a culture of invitation, and communicate with this connected generation where they are. Pastors, ministry leaders, youth workers, and parents will find this an essential and hopeful resource.

Great for Christians in leadership

Facebook is extremely helpful for understanding the culture of the current generation is growing up in. This is a must-read for any Christian in a leadership position of any capacity. Very telling and very well written. The voice narration wasn't great at the start but it gets better as the book goes on.

A real Eye Opener

This book got me thinking differently about the way I look at and evaluate our youth. The author brought out several key points that I will use and pass on.

Liberal, old Earth/evolutionary teaching.

I didn't agree with all of this theology and how he changes scripture to fit it to science. But he has a good understanding of the next generation.

It sounds more like a indictment on a generation.

I understand how frightening a new paradigm is but there should be more internal review on why the church is losing this generation than what is wrong with them.
I know the author is setting the stage for how to reach them but the initial tone is hard to get past. There is more of this. "culture war" rhetoric than real understanding of the dynamics of their lives in the information age.
Please don't take this review as a slight of the author, by no means but it is simply not beneficial for my understanding of the generation.

Not what II was expecting

I was looking for a generation Z book that I could apply to sales. What I found was a book about generation Z and the Christian church. It was enjoyable.

Relevant and relatable

Excellent book, needs to be balanced a bit with something like "Letters to the Church" by Fran Chan, but I love what James Emery has to share in this must read book. I believe it's important to be relevant and relatable in order to share Jesus and this helped me get there. The sermons offered at the end are priceless! Worth every penny! I've listened to this book numerous times and have recommended it to everyone I know.

Narrator needed more life

The narrator was quite monotone. However, he made no mistakes in his reading. Enjoyed it.

far too brief

He's just getting started... then prints a few sermons and is done... but what is there, is very interesting.
