Most Helpful Customer Reviews

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Michael Dalton VINE VOICE on October 10, 2006
Format: Paperback
The Relevant Nation reads like a modern roll call of faith for those under 40. These men and women are passionate about using their gifts and abilities to serve God and others.

Reading the brief two page summaries is inspiring, convicting and challenging. It's an encouragement for the rest of us to find our place, if we haven't already, and do what we can to make a difference in this world.

Some of the profiles are done in an interview format; most provide an overview supplemented with quotations from the individual. Key personal information appears in block format at the top of each section. The book is neatly divided into three parts: Activists & Philanthropists, Artists & Thinkers and Innovators & Leaders.

Some of the subjects are better known like Don Miller, Lauren Winner, Dan Haseltine and Derek Webb but many are not.

Many may not realize that the founder of Paste magazine, Josh Jackson, is a committed Christian. Jay Bakker, son of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, is now a Pastor who has been set free by grace. It's a theme that he shares freely with young people that feel alienated from God and the Church.

Social justice is a common theme in the lives of these people. "Christians may have vague ideas and notions that some people might be doing something about injustice somewhere in the world," says Bethany Hoang. "But if you read Scripture, it's abundantly clear that justice is the calling of all who follow Jesus--no matter who you are and where you live. Justice is fundamental to the heartbeat of God's passion for the world."

Scott Derrickson loves to create. For him it's a calling.
