You've heard the stats by now: the Millennial generation is leaving the church.

Walking away in disillusionment and frustration, they are looking for new communities to welcome them. As they seek to follow Jesus, they are leaving the churches they grew up in to find a new way.

In an attempt to exemplify the story of Millennials and seek answers for the future, Paul Nyquist, President of Moody Bible Institute, has teamed up with his son, Carson Nyquist, to share an honest and thoughtful conversation on this topic. As father and son they've experienced this generational disconnect, both personally and in the church.  

Hear their story as they converse about the experiences of the Millennials in the church and share thoughts for how to move forward.

If you are a traditional mission agency, use this book to help your staff and field missionaries understand the view of church/ministry of the new generation who is coming into your ranks. If you are a church, use it to help stimulate inter-church understanding. The book nicely repackages the generational difference issues with the special intent of reaching out to those Christian millennials who have discarded the church.

I enjoyed this book. It is a quick read, and although I’ve either said or heard many of the general ideas covered in here, the authors took fresh approaches to many of them and kept my attention throughout. I really like the format of the book and felt like it gave me a better understanding of both the generation in front of and the generation behind me. I love the conversation that they’ve started, and I hope that it continues. http://www.hippiemommy.com/2013/03/05/the-post-church-christian/

All in all, I find this book an enjoyable read, especially when I can see the perspectives of two different generation looking together in the same direction toward the Millennial and toward creating a common future for the Church. It is an example of how generations can dialogue and work together for a common goal. This book shows us a way ahead. A powerful way indeed. http://booksaint.blogspot.com/2013/02/the-post-church-christian-j-paul.html
