Is the church losing the next generation? Millions of young Christians are disconnecting from the church as they transition into adulthood. They're real people, not just statistics. And each one has a story.

  • "I knew from church that I couldn't believe in both science and God, so that was it. I didn't believe in God anymore." -Mike
  • "When I write a song that's not used in a way that every Christian agrees on, I get hammered. What am I supposed to be using my talents for?" -Sam
  • "I felt like I had been punched in the stomach . . . I remember thinking on the way home, My non-Christian friends would never do that to me." -Sarah
  • "It just feels like the church's teaching on sexuality is behind the times." -Dennis

Now the bestselling coauthor of unChristian reveals the long-awaited results of a new nationwide study of 18- to 29-year-olds with a Christian background. Discover why so many are disengaging from the faith community, renew your hope for how God is at work in the next generation - and find out how you can join in.
