Carol Howard Merritt dismantles the wall of stained glass that often separates mainline churches from people under forty. Combining real-life stories, personal reflections as a thirty-something, and current research, Merritt affords congregations a clearer, more compassionate view not only of the "missing generation," but of themselves and their ministry. --Eric Elnes, Senior Pastor of Scottsdale Congregational United Church of Christ and author of Asphalt Jesus: Finding a New Christian Faith on the Highways of America
Carol Howard Merritt crisply articulates fresh answers to those tired mainline plaints, "Where are the young people? What do they want?" Her recommendations will rouse cheers from our seminary students, give new lenses to aging Boomer eyes, and fill our pews with new vitality. --Anne S. Howard, Executive Director, The Beatitudes Society

While some of her theology was troubling to me, I could not escape the loving and understanding approach presented in her thesis. Rev. Merritt knows the Evangelical world. She appreciates and commends the Evangelical fervor for spreading the goodness of Christ. There is much to learn from her regarding how the missing generation preceives the Evangelical church and why they are hesitant to return to the church.
I'm also giving a copy to my pastor for Christmas.

Platitudes with minimal substance. Does not address the question, only gives old hackneyed answers.Published 14 months ago by Jean McCoard
The author is a Pastor, yet she does not seem to hold
a biblical view of how a person gets to heaven. Her approach
to pastoring to young adults does not match my ideas.
I appreciated the quick service. The condition of the book was very good. The book has already had three readers. There is lots of very good points made.Published on January 15, 2012 by Sherman Stephens

A very good book with lots of room for thought. Some of the ideas are needed in every church and some of the ideas I believe are way out in left field. Read morePublished on September 22, 2009 by Little Cuss
