Publisher's Summary

Christianity has an image problem.Christians are supposed to represent Christ to the world. But according to the latest report card, something has gone terribly wrong. Using descriptions like "hypocritical," "insensitive," and "judgmental," young Americans share an impression of Christians that's nothing short of . . . unChristian. Find out why these negative perceptions exist, learn how to reverse them in a Christlike manner, and discover practical examples of how Christians can positively contribute to culture.

A Wake Up Call to the Christian Right

Mr. Kinnaman has a wake up call for contemporary Christianity. There really is a call to action -- but it's not the one that the politically connected of conservative Christianity has been screaming for so long. It is a call to become... more like Christ (*GASP*).

The author has some very solid research to back up his position as well. Through extensive interviews with younger Christians and outsiders of the post-Baby Boomer generations, he makes a very solid position that these young people see Christianity acting in some very un-Christlike ways. And it's turning them away from Christ in droves.

He then proceeds to make an excellent case based upon this research that there are some very appropriate and Christian things that contemporary Christianity can (and in my personal opinion, should) to better reflect faith in Christ to these outsiders

Narration and production are as I have always had from audible -- impeccable.

My heart was forever changed

This book was very well done very well written and very well narrated... I appreciate all the extensive research and the integrity and honesty of presenting The fax. I am a mom of a 29-year-old and my son became a Christian when he was 13 years old. I can see my sons life in the pages of this book i'm grateful for reading it because it helps me to understand where my son is coming from and why he thinks the way that he does about Christianity and Christians in general even more how he feels and what he thinks about me and my faith. my son no longer attends church and has no desire to since he was 18 years old... He had a few bad experiences in the youth ministry he was a part of looking at the lives of those Who claimed to be lovers of Christ treated his friends that were "" outsiders. this book helped me to take a look at my Faith and decide to make changes in my life that are more in line with Christ and his examples of love. I gave this book 5 stars because it deserves hire and my life is changed forever because of it. I would recommend this book to all Christians in the faith Who are looking for a Reformation or restoration in your life. Amen?!
