If you know any young person who has walked away from the faith, this book will give you insight into what motivated that departure. It will also give you tools to begin a conversation with that person in a way that may just woo them back.

Review 2 for Generation Ex-Christian: Why Young Adults Are Leaving the Faith and How to Bring Them Back
Date:July 20, 2011
I found it very helpful to hear the stories of young people raised in the church who have left their faith for various reasons. It helped me understand my own grown children's issues with the church in more depth. I agree that the church has caused a lot of these problems with entertaining kids and trying to bring them into the church en masse, filling them with very little substance and watered down Gospel. The young adults that I have been exposed to through my grown children do have many of the same issues as those mentioned in the book. Hopefully I can use the ideas presented to help them return to a stronger faith in Jesus. I can see that they want a cause to fight for and want to contribute to the world in a way that means something to them.
