Find out why these negative perceptions exist, learn how to reverse them in a Christlike manner, and discover practical examples of how Christians can positively contribute to culture. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Very interesting....an important book to read if you identify yourself as Christian "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeremy Copeland | 2/5/2014

    " A must read for anyone hoping to be effective in ministry to this generation. Basically every Christian needs to read this. It's important to see ourselves how we are perceived through other's eyes. For many, it will probably be a huge wake-up. I really appreciated how Kinnaman didn't just deliver stats, but really got to the heart of the issues. He addressed the reader as a concerned friend who needed to tell us some difficult truths. I for one really appreciated that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 2/4/2014

    " Some pretty amazing data that came out of this study - both convicting and challenging (in a good way) for the Christian faith. The authors obviously have a particular theological bent that rears its head, especially over the homosexuality issue (they push very hard the idea of loving homosexual persons, but maintain that it is wrong). Still, a good book to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Kim | 1/28/2014

    " Want to get to know the millenials and the reason why so many are disenfranchised with the church? read this book. whether you agree or not, this is a book church leaders must wrestle with. Great stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cary Sawatsky | 1/23/2014

    " This book took a LONG time to finish. Valuable information but he says in 100 words what could be said in 20. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kassel | 1/19/2014

    " Every Christian MUST read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jordan Batdorf | 1/17/2014

    " This books demands reevaluation of your christian walk. Who you thought you portrayed, for me at least, will most likely be challenged, and possible even take an immediate turn for the better. unChristian is full of hard, tangible facts from none other than the people who see us (christians) on a regular basis. Normal, everyday people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy Young | 1/15/2014

    " Holly lent this to me -- his foundings rang true to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mieke Mcbride | 1/15/2014

    " As a sociologist and a Christian, I loved this book. Loved the way it was organized-- each chapter is about a different way the church is perceived by non-Christians and involves stats, excerpts from interviews, and, my favorite part, several essays from a variety of church leaders on how we can respond to these perceptions, in ways that are in line with the calls to "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind" and "Loving your neighbor as yourself." Really thought-provoking (and prayer-provoking). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 1/10/2014

    " Important book with solid statistics about what young people think of different aspects of Christianity. It makes the same point as Dan Kimball in "They Like Jesus, but Not the Church"--only with the statistics to back it up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Winrech Bosman | 12/11/2013

    " Love this book a lot! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott Hunter | 11/27/2013

    " Very informative into how todays culture views the church. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Townsend | 11/11/2013

    " Crazy good...challenging... heartbreaking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jory Houser | 10/31/2013

    " great to merge research into Christianity writings. I like barna group alot. Suggest Christians and spiritual people to read, if this isn't you then I wouldn't suggest to read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick Littlejohn | 10/12/2013

    " A provocative look at the way American Christian culture has developed such a subculture that it is no longer hearing or speaking to the broader culture. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 5/23/2013

    " Amazing research and a lot to think about. Points out that changes are needed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cary | 8/27/2012

    " Fascinating. Christians, especially, should read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 6/4/2012

    " The statistics and information from the actual surveys is outstanding. The various anecdotes and stories at the end of the chapters come from a variety of perspectives that I would not necessarily recommend. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christine Rhyne | 6/4/2012

    " It just repeated issues and things that I already knew. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patti Kirkland | 5/27/2012

    " A must-read for anyone who has been a believer for a long time and still cares about those who are not yet.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikki Tapia | 4/6/2012

    " Love the research that was done for this. Very informative. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marshall | 7/25/2011

    " Interesting read. I think it is a good perspective for Christians to understand, although not that surprising. You can gather the same information from watching prime time TV. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doreen | 6/11/2011

    " Loved this book. A big eye opener for any follower of God. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 6/9/2011

    " It was okay.

    Really love hearing Winkie Pratney on YouTube talking about how God wants to use our generation. Much more exciting and encouraging for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tyler | 3/3/2011

    " great research, not always great application "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie (Kwiltreader) | 2/10/2011

    " This was an excellent book for our church's book club discussion. Opened up many different opinions of how we, as Christians, see ourselves and how others see us. When seen through others eyes, it's not very flattering. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 2/9/2011

    " I skimmed this book for the main points. Not much was surprising for me. There are a number of helpful tidbits here and there, including a short and characteristically thoughtful essay from Andy Crouch at the end that's worth the price of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Toothpic | 1/20/2011

    " This was an awesome awesome book. A must read for Christians "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 12/23/2010

    " Very interesting....an important book to read if you identify yourself as Christian "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindi | 12/20/2010

    " I think every Christian MUST read this book. It identifies some of the very real realities of the church and the hypocrisy of this world we live in. Our actions are speaking louder than our words and the rest of the world is beginning to notice. It's a bit researchy, but its an important read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerry | 12/4/2010

    " A wake up call for the Church!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 11/21/2010

    " This,citing much Barna Group research, is a must-read for American Christians and Christian leaders. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 10/21/2010

    " I resonated with much of this book, and the research was impressive and informative, but I think that I'm looking for some answers to some follow up questions that I have to the research. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 10/9/2010

    " All Christians should read this book, if for nothing else than to see what a bad job at representing Jesus we've done. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James | 9/15/2010

    " Helpful and challenging data, but the author's own biases color his recommendations to the church. I found myself skimming over his opinions and anxious to get on the next set of data. "
