Vital lessons from the Postmodern Reformation:
How emerging generations are transforming the church.
There is no one right way to “do church” for Generations X and Y and for the generations that will follow. But one thing is certain: The traditional baby-boomer church model isn’t cutting it for many young people seeking an authentic expression of Christian faith. Now noted author and journalist Steve Rabey takes a close look at the church in the midst of wrenching social, cultural, and philosophical changes. Drawing from thorough research and extensive interviews with emerging church leaders, he has written a comprehensive guide to what post-boomer leaders are thinking, doing, and trying in order to reach new audiences of largely unchurched but spiritually hungry people.
Rabey examines such vital questions as:
>How can we overcome the inherent distrust young people have toward institutions such as the church?
>How can worship services provide both an intimate spiritual connection for believers and a winsome spiritual reality for unbelievers?
>How can the church build relationships with postmodernists who have little use for absolute truth?
>How can we understand and reach out to the vast array of distinct subcultures among the emerging generations?
The emerging generations are yearning for something authentic and compelling. Something satisfying and hopeful. In Search of Authentic Faith provides Christians with fresh insight into these intriguing minds and the hearts behind them and how these new leaders will transform ministry in the twenty-first century.
