You Lost Me shows why Christians ages eighteen to twenty-nine are leaving the church and rethinking their commitment to the faith. Based on new research conducted by the Barna Group, David Kinnaman exposes ways the Christian community has failed to equip young adults to live “in but not of” the world—to follow Christ in the midst of profound cultural change. This wide-ranging study debunks persistent myths about young dropouts and examines the likely consequences for both young adults and the church if we maintain the status quo. The faith journeys of the next generation are a challenge to the established church, but they can also be a source of hope for the community of faith. Kinnaman, with the help of contributors from across the Christian spectrum, offers ideas for pastors, youth leaders, parents, and educators to pass on a vibrant, lasting faith and ideas for young adults to find themselves in wholehearted pursuit of Christ.
