A trailblazer for truth and relationships, Josh McDowell has been at the forefront of cultural trends and ground-breaking ministry for over five decades.

Josh shares the essentials of the Christian faith in everyday language so that youth, families, churches, leaders and individuals of all ages are prepared for the life of faith and the work of the ministry. This included leveraging resources based on years of experiences, new technologies and strategic partnerships.

Since 1961, Josh has delivered more than 26,000 talks to over 25,000,000 people in 125 countries. He is the author or co-author of 140 books, including More Than a Carpenter and New Evidence That Demands a Verdict, recognized by World Magazine as one of the top 40 books of the twentieth century. Josh's books are available in over 100 different languages.

Josh and his wife, Dottie, are quick to acknowledge that after their love for the Lord, family is their greatest joy and top priority. They have been married for 41 years and have four wonderful children and eight beloved grandchildren.

Josh McDowell Ministry is a division of Cru (the U.S. division of Campus Crusade for Christ International).

I have not read this book yet, but was looking for some information on it and found nothing here. I did find the comments below, made by the publisher on their website, and thought I would post them here. The 4 star rating was selected just to get this information posted.

The Last Christian Generation addresses a larger, overarching issue of how today's distorted cultural view of Christianity, truth, and reality has changed the way our nation's young people define faith and what it means to be a Christian.

"The problem is," states McDowell, "Dan Brown's book and the movie simply makes a bad situation even worse. The Christian faith has been under attack in this culture for decades and because most believers haven't been equipped to know why they believe, the very foundation of Christianity within the Church has eroded. If trends continue, the next generation of the Church will not even be rightfully called Christian."

In The Last Christian Generation, McDowell challenges church leaders, educators and parents to understand why the very foundations of the Christian faith have eroded and what must be done long-term to rebuild them.

In his research, McDowell has uncovered some startling statistics. For example, among churched youth:
* 63% don't believe that Jesus is the Son of the one true God.
* 51% don't believe that Jesus rose from the dead.
* 68% don't believe that the Holy Spirit is a real entity.
* It has been estimated that between 69% and 94% of churched youth are leaving the traditional church after high school, and very few are returning.
* Only 33% of churched youth have said that the church will play a part in their lives when they leave home.

I am a youth pastor in Wichita, KS. My church hired me for several reasons, one of them being an expectation that I might help them solve the problem with their youth; the problem that after they graduate high school they tend to leave the church for good. Through prayer and a year of getting to know my students and their families, I determined that what they needed the most was not me but the role modeling, wisdom, and acceptance, of old saints. My next problem was that many of the old saints in my church seem to think they have retired from Christian service (where's that in the Bible?) and are not approving of our teens; in fact, they seem to even fear/resent the teens. On top of that, I am up against an American, traditional expectation that this type of role modeling is to be accomplished by the youth pastor and no one else: a misnomer. How could I recruit my old people to be role models of solid faith under these conditions?

Attempting to inspire a traditional group of people 2 and 3 times my age has been tricky. My problem here was that none of the ways I came up with was striking a nerve. I discovered that the authors or authorities I would cite in my presentations were either unknown to the elderly people or untrusted, producing less than desirable reaction from among my audiences... not to mention I'm relatively young and from a California surf town... what do I know? So I began looking for a known, trusted author who was addressing my issue. When I found this book, I discovered a way to introduce the concept of inter-generational ministry to our old folks that would be trusted, accepted, listened to, and hopefully acted upon.

As a youth leader, this book was very helpful and I got a lot of wonderful pointers from it about how the youth understands the Bible and God in comparison to how I look at those things. It gave me encouragement of how to approach them and teach them Biblical truths so they can better grasp God and His will for them so that they hopefully will be motivated to live fully for Him. I think all youth leaders and youth pastors should read this book.

I am so so glad I read this book. It was a huge help to me in my children's ministry work. You get a great grasp on how our children and youth today are influenced to preferential thinking verses truth/reality thinking...even down to how this generation defines words to their detriment because all of life is becoming murky to them. I only gave the book 4 stars, as the authors propose a method of ministry that I don't have the ability to bring. But that comes more at the end. It's very worth the read for impacting our children today for Chirst.

This book has one of THE most important messages to the Church and Church leaders of post-modern America. If the American Church does not read and heed its message, it won't be long before Third World countries will be sending missionaries to us and smuggling Bibles into the US! It's an easy read, but the message is clear and serious!
