As a parent who was saddened to seem my oldest kids either reject or ignore the faith they were raised with as they grew up, this has really helped me to re-focus on priorities as my youngest enters the critical HS years.
Great for a parents small group or SS class!!!
Clark and Powell speak frankly with their audience and offer great parenting insight and advice. Their statistical approach can feel matter-of-fact but they do not neglect the many nuances behind parenting. The sticky metaphor became a bit grating and the constant drive towards stickyfaith.org sounded like a commercial for more sticky products. The overall tone of the book is helpful and the style of publication didn't obfuscate my experience.
I would recommend this book to parents. The scope of Sticky Faith leans towards older elementary aged kids. The principles are relevant to anyone who works with children but the target audience is definitely mom and dad.

It's a story we have heard all too often. A good kid grows up in the church, reads his Bible regularly, is heavily involved in the youth group, he knows the Lord's Prayer like the back of his hand, yet he goes off to college and his faith goes out the window. He no longer goes to church, no desire to do devotions, no interest in pursuing a deep faith. And the numbers don't lie: the majority of young men and women will abandon their faith soon in the young adulthood.
Sticky Faith attempts to find the solution. What makes faith stick? The authors go through a mound of research to expose what works and what doesn't work. They balance out their research with practical tips for parents and youth group leaders.
I have read a handful of books and articles about "keeping the faith" but I was really impressed with this work. In my opinion, Christians tend to regularly shy away from research probably because research rarely gives us the news we want to hear. So instead believers utilize vague clichés and formulas such as "let the Holy Spirit work" or "just pray and the results will follow." In this work, the authors use their resources from Fuller Seminary to show how we can help young men and women form a faith that is deep, true, and enduring.
