Editorial Reviews

Review

"Amy and Christian calmly and comprehensively describe a young adult reality of which their church-going parents and grandparents are only dimly aware. Mercifully the Piatts also offer an invitation to relationship. With respect for the past and honesty about the present, they show where varied generational narratives can intersect in the ebrace of authentic Christian community and open the way toward a renewal of hope for all." -- Sharon Watkins, General Minister and President of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

From the Publisher

MySpace's explosive popularity indicates a voracious desire for community among youth and young adults, and Amy and Christian Piatt's online survey of young adults confirms a great interest in spirituality. The Piatts discuss how the church can walk alongside younger people in their quest to find sacred space.

More About the Author

I've authored and edited several books, mostly in the areas of faith and culture, young adult spirituality and emerging church. My newest book, due out in February 2011, is BANNED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE BIBLE. Book two in the series, called BANNED QUESTIONS ABOUT JESUS, will be published in June 2011, and my humorous memoir on faith, pregnancy and parenting called PULLING THE GOALIE is due out in early 2012.

I'm series co-editor for a series of books with Chalice Press known as the WTF? (Where's the Faith) Series, which are aimed at the interests and faith of young adults. The first book, OH GOD, OH GOD, OH GOD!, looks at faith an sexuality, and SPLIT TICKET is the second book in the series (co-edited by me, Brandon Gilvin and Amy Gopp), which talks about the intersections of faith and politics.

I co-authored a book on young adult spirituality with my wife, Amy Piatt, called MYSPACE TO SACRED SPACE, and my first book, LOST: A SEARCH FOR MEANING is about the theological symbols and underlying themes in the hit TV show, LOST.

I speak nationally about diversity and justice issues in the church and our communities, young adult faith, emerging church and faith & technology. for more about me, my books, blog, podcast and videos, check out www.christianpiatt.com.

Format: Paperback
My wife and I have just finished reading Christian and Amy Piatt's book MySpace to Sacred Space. While both of us have read more books on church growth than we can remember (my wife is a pastor), we have rarely come away from any of them as charged and excited about the possibilities for church in the 21st century as we did with this one. Far from being yet another program for growth, MySpace to Sacred Space focuses on the much more ancient and important task of building community. Christian and Amy weave personal stories, experiences, and insights together to illustrate the power of story and community in the life of the church. Whether my wife and I find ourselves planting new churches or helping older congregations revitalize, I am confident that the ideas of MySpace to Sacred Space will be with us for a long time.

This book gives great insight to being a young adult Christian in a consumerist society. Anyone working with young adults would find this a valuable resource.

I could not get through this book. I wish I could because it has good information and is a good book for anyone thinking about God and religion.
