In a series of groundbreaking studies that led to two bestselling books, David Kinnaman and his team at Barna Group uncovered the reasons young people are increasingly resisting and rejecting the church. But the news isn't all bleak. Recent analysis of Barna's rich store of data reveals a hidden hope: the Church already has the resources to meet young people's deepest desires and most pressing needs-if only church leaders and Christian parents rediscover them and put them into practice. In Faith for Exiles, David Kinnaman teams up with former executive director of Youth Specialties Mark Matlock to reveal five formational practices that have the power to cultivate resilient faith in the next generation. Drawing on groundbreaking insights and never-before-released data, Kinnaman and Matlock show readers that God has not given up on the next generation. In fact, the church is needed, now more than ever, to disciple, bless, and empower young Jesus followers-and to learn from them. Defying the secularizing trends, these resilient young Christians are paving a faithful way forward in digital Babylon. Faith for Exiles offers Christians young and old the hope and real-world wisdom they're looking for as they navigate a rapidly changing, increasingly complex, post-Christian culture, as exiles together.
