5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for everyone who loves the church and her "missing generation", October 21, 2007
This review is from: Tribal Church: Ministering to the Missing Generation (Paperback)
Tribal Church is perhaps the best-ever book for those who sincerely want to create a place for young adults to worship and serve. At last, we can stop our hand-wringing and lamentations over the absence of our adult children in church because now, Carol Merritt has offered us a vision of the church in which everyone, young and old and in-between, has a place, a voice and an equal opportunity to share their gifts and to grow in truth and love. With clarity, kindness and authority, Rev. Merritt shatters those long-held, false assumptions that have far too long kept us from reaching out to the "missing generation" and provides a way for us to welcome them on their own terms and meet them where they are, not necessarily where we would like them to be. Tribal Church provides a path toward insight, understanding and acceptance of this generation's unique perspecitves, their needs and challenges, as well as their gifts for ministry and mission. In the end, Carol's book is about hope. Hope for those of us who have earnestly prayed for an authentic way to approach and serve our young adults, and real hope for the future of the church.
