From the Publisher
"Authors Anderson, Hill and Martinson have heard the voices of young men whose stories reveal depth of spirituality and the workings of faith. In our "feminized churches" these are the marginalized. This is not a critique of women's places in our ministries. It is a corrective to make room for those outside. Truth in love. Buy this book. Read this book. Pray through this book and for women and men to find their place in our churches again." Pastor Michael Foss, Senior Pastor of Prince of Peace in Burnsville, Minnesota, author Power Surge, Real Faith for Real Life, and A Servant's Manual
"Coming of Age is a major contribution to the field of men's ministry from the evangelical, mainline church perspective. It is must reading for anyone who cares about young men- and reaching them for Christ." Doug Haugen, Director, Lutheran Men in Mission, the men's ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
"Coming of Age provides much needed information for the church regarding men and especially young men who are much less present in the pew than was the case just twenty years ago. We have in this book, reflective research identifying common themes based on the interviews of 88 young men from very different walks of life with suggestions as to how we can provide opportunities for young men to see God at work in the world and in the church. When young men live in a culture that focuses on self, work, sports, consumerism and personal experience suggestions are made as to how the church, can lift up forgiveness, repentance, sacraments and Holy Scripture. I recommend reading and reflection to pastors and lay leaders who wish to reach out the young men who are dropping away from the church in record numbers." The Rev. Dr. Leonard H. Bolick, Bishop, North Carolina Synod, ELCA
