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. The elders of my church (4 of 6 have well grayed hair :-D) have responded very well so far and have given me the green light to present this concept to the older congregants a little at a time. This is tremendous because it has the potential to completely change the culture of our church. I have my first meeting with about a dozen folks aged 60 to 90 tomorrow evening.
Josh McDowell is well trusted among Middle American churches, understands teens, and can relate to his own peer group (older folks) quite well. His book clearly communicates the urgent need to rethink church as we know it, and to start setting aside some of the traditional ideas about education and authoritative roles in conservative, American churches. There is no better representative, of teens to elderly, that is writing on this topic. This book has already begun to catalyze the paradigm shift I have been praying for in my church; praise Jesus! I hope you find it as useful to you.
