Close to 60 percent of young Christians who went to church as teens drop out after high school. In You Lost Me, the bestselling coauthor of unchristian trained his researcher's eye on Christians aged 16-29, exposing why they leave the church and rethink their faith.

This DVD and discussion guide will inform, equip, and empower groups and churches to understand the unique challenges that are affecting younger Christians. It's not enough for us to know that they are dropping out and rethinking their faith; this video study and discussion guide provides key insights and practical ways that we can actively engage this generation with thoughtful conversation.

Do to this excerpt in section 8 titled "repressive", I can not recommend this book.
“I found that the Bible’s sexual ethic is much more complex, more nuanced, than I expected. This (the 20 something) generation needs us (the greater than 30) to be honest about the fact that the Bible is not crystal clear on all matters of sexuality. Together, we need to search it, test it, probe its essential meaning in its historical, cultural, and literary context.”

Clearly states views and priorities of those who chose not to stay with the church.
My daughter and one of our pastor's sons have chosen not to follow God which breaks our hearts. We want to know why and this book articulates it.
Traditional worship has to change to become more application oriented, "what have you done for the world today?"
Reach their hearts before their minds will see the depths of understanding a true Christian must have.
