More than 60 percent of young people who went to church as teens drop out after high school. This is a striking and alarming statistic. Now the bestselling author of unChristian trains his researcher's eye on these young believers. Where Kinnaman's first book unChristian showed the world what outsiders aged 16 - 29 think of Christianity, You Lost Me shows why younger Christians, ages 16 - 29, are leaving the church and rethinking their faith. Based on new research, You Lost Me shows pastors, church leaders, and parents how we have failed to equip young people to live in - but not of - the world and how this has serious long-term consequences. He then offers suggestions on how to help young people develop and maintain a vibrant faith that they embrace rather than toss away.

    " Tough questions that we need to address as a church. I think some of the way forward outlined in the book are purely theological viewpoints of the author, which I mostly can agree with, but the interesting point here is that more than half of Christian teens leave active involvement in the church as they enter post-high school stage of life. I'm devoting a sermon series at my church to each of the categories of nomads, prodigals, and exiles. "

    " must read for anyone who cares about teenagers and young adults "

    " Nothing too earth-shattering, here, and a bit of intimidation-by-polls, numbers, and by simply no longer being hip. And, the subtitle, "rethinking faith" seems trite. The book lends itself to developing ministries that will attract visitors based on appealing to their personal tastes in worship style, music, location, etc., rather than the often terrifying prospect of committing to the preaching and living out of the gospel itself, and then trusting God to bring whomever He will to a particular ministry. "

    " A very "egg-head" approach to the problem of the exodus of young people from the Christian church. It is well researched and will offer a sobering truth to the reality of how the church is holding on to vestiges of bygone days while the younger generation is quietly leaving the building. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebekah | 12/13/2013

    " As someone in the "young Christians" demographic, I have to say that this book is spot-on with what I and many of my friends experience in the Church today. For anyone wanting to better understand why so many people (especially young people) are either exercising their faith outside the Church or leaving faith entirely, READ THIS BOOK! There is a lot of good research and insight here. Read, learn, and start a conversation. This is important stuff! "

    " I find David Kinnaman's research refreshing. He asks tough, insightful questions, and doesn't sugarcoat his findings. His reactions to those findings, and how he wants to address them I often do disagree with, but his research is solid. This book is lighter on research than his previous book "UnChristian", and heavier on prescriptions for his findings, consequently I found it a bit of a slog to get through. But his research is fascinating, as his his judicial use of onger responses from the interviews to flesh out the research results. Here is a guy of which you can say "I may not agree with your opinions, but you do seem to have the facts right." "

    " Excellent read. Kinnaman makes terrific use of his analytic and research smarts and his story telling sensibility. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Eversole | 11/20/2013

    " Very good. Challenging to those of us who are 'older' in the church and concerned about making sure the 'younger' having a saving relationship with Jesus. Mr. Kinnaman gives some good ideas and insight into how we should be thinking about our processes and approach, without changing the message. Very much worth reading! "

    " I loved this book. I can't say I agree with everything our every idea presented, but it really opened my mind up to what is going on in the church. I would strongly recommend any one in church or Christian school leadership to read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynda Gravier | 8/7/2013

    " This has to be the most important book I've read this year. Any parent of teens or twenty-somethings really needs to read this. And if all our church leadership would read it and comprehend what this information means for the future of the American church - what a huge difference it could make. "

    " Good book. Some interesting ideas and approaches but the best thing is the statistics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 10/22/2012

    " Author discusses why youth (20's) are leaving the church and has quite a few statistics to back it up. Dry reading at times. Other parts are very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevan | 9/23/2012

    " This book paints a research driven picture of the Millenial generation; better and smarter than the broad generalizations I've read about Gen Y elsewhere. I've ended up referring to this data for work with web/marketing clients trying to reach the current youth/20-something generation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren Tomlinson | 9/18/2012

    " This is a really great book about why the church is losing the "mosaic" generation. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcus Lynn | 7/4/2012

    " I'm a sucker for books that research generational differences or why people are leaving the church. This has a little of the former and lot of the latter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason Bruce | 6/20/2012

    " Excellent book in understanding the young generation and the current state of Christian Churches. Challenging and thought provoking. Stats and findings are great conversation-starters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 11/15/2011

    " Read this during let summer, early fall. Brings up great points. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ty Hogue | 11/10/2011

    " This book has a lot to say about how [as churches and people that care about young adults] we can move to a place of engagement and relationship with the mosaic generation. "
