Publisher's Summary

More than 60 percent of young people who went to church as teens drop out after high school. This is a striking and alarming statistic. Now the bestselling author of unChristian trains his researcher's eye on these young believers. Where Kinnaman's first book unChristian showed the world what outsiders aged 16–29 think of Christianity, You Lost Me shows why younger Christians, ages 16–29, are leaving the church and rethinking their faith. Based on new research, You Lost Me shows pastors, church leaders, and parents how we have failed to equip young people to live in - but not of - the world and how this has serious long-term consequences. He then offers suggestions on how to help young people develop and maintain a vibrant faith that they embrace rather than toss away.

A Clarion Wake-Up Call To The Church

Would you listen to You Lost Me again? Why?

It was a real easy book to listen to especially to acquire the information. It was a part of my Automobile University curriculum and I loved it. Listening on my IPad I was able to bookmark thost parts of the book that I wanted to go back to.

What did you like best about this story?

The six reason why the Mosaics (ages 18-29) disconnect from the church. They were reasons I (as a Baptist pastor) had not considered but were quite valid. He also discusses the generational differences between the groups in the church and provides some good strategies on how to resolve those differences.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The section where Kinneman talks about information access. He lifts up an example of watching movies in the 70s vs the access to movies today. It was a stark contrast between boomers and mosaics.

Any additional comments?

The audible was, to me, so good that I went and got the e-book for my Kindle app.
