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.

Good and Bad

While I really like the heart of this book and the basic concepts it promotes, it has the tendency to be very ageist at times, and in some ways continues the attitude it talks about throwing out (talking about being humble and non-judgmental, while using somewhat prideful, arrogant tones). I still think it's a great book for Christians to read, but it falls flat in the potential it has in the message by being overly careful not to offend its base of readers. It takes *some* of the blame for things Christians have done to tarnish their image, but not quite enough. Much of the blame still seems placed on "outsiders" and their "ignorance."

Essential listening for thinking Christians

Very interesting exposé of how Christians are viewed by young Americans who aren't "in the club". The book then goes on to examine where this image has come from and suggest how we can break down barriers which have grown up.

As a Brit, I recognised a lot of the thoughts and trends in my own culture too.

My one complaint is that, like many audiobooks, the divisions on the recording bear no relation to the chapters in the book, making it tricky to navigate. Is it really so difficult for production companies to make 1 chapter = 1 track?
