Sure to interest even the secularists who study this group, The Millennials is based on 1200 interviews with its namesakes that aim to better understand them personally, professionally, and spiritually. Chapters report intriguing how-and-why findings on family matters (they are closer-knit than previous generations), their desire for diversity (consider the wave of mixed race and ethnic adoptions), Millennials and the new workplace, their attitude toward money, the media, the environment, and perhaps most tellingly, religion.
The authors close with a thoughtful response to how the church can engage and minister to what is now in fact the largest generation in America’s history.

5 years from publish date makes this unfortunately out of date when discussing millennials.
The research from this book was done only on those Millennials born from 1980-1991. Being that it was published in 2011 that makes the age of those researched between 19 - 30 at that time. Or in their 2016 age 24 - 35 now. I was born in 1979 and have been managing people in retail and sales environments since I turned 19 in 1998. According to the authors definition I've always been managing Millennials if any of my employees were younger than me. I can say with first hand experience that the work force didn't shift in 1998 or even 2005. The shift in employee behavior didn't show up in my work force until closer to 2010. In almost 20 years of managing Millennials I disagree with the research conclusions that they value marriage, that they have high respect for older generations, and that they are hard workers. Personally I think the time frame for the definition of Millennials should be more along the lines of those born from 1984 - 1999. I think research done on that group in 2016 would bear different results and conclusions.
