Summary

Negative perceptions. Church dropouts. Prodigals and nomads. It's easy to get discouraged by all that's going wrong when it comes to Christianity and the emerging generation. Yet what's going right? In fact, signs of hope are springing up all around. Faith for Exiles unveils major new Barna research that uncovers what's working - five practices that contribute to resilience. 

In a world where always-connected smart devices and search algorithms educate and entertain, digital Babylon is the new context for discipleship. Faith for Exiles reveals findings from a groundbreaking three-year research study of young Christians whose faith remains resilient even in exile. Barna president David Kinnaman teams up with former executive director of Youth Specialties Mark Matlock to help you: 

  • Make sense of chaotic cultural changes and respond with compassion to the next generation of believers 
  • Recognize the biblical concept of exile as an essential framework for following Christ today 
  • Discover five research-based practices that cultivate faithfulness in digital Babylon 
  • Prepare young Christians to be on mission with Jesus in the world 
  • And more 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Hope for today’s young adults and the rest of us

This is excellent. Instead of bemoaning the young adults who have left the church, the authors talk mostly about those young adults who are still part of the church. They are called resilient. They are called that because they are resilient. The book looks at different characteristics of resilience. What qualities do they have? What characteristics do they have? The book talks about those and tells many stories of resilient persons.
