Item Description...
Overview
Is there hope in this era of cynicism? Jimmy Long, a campus minister for more that twenty-five years, is convinced that we are in the middle of a societal hurricane. As our culture moves further into postmodernity, now is the time of enormous and rapid change. How do we "do church" in such an era? How do we reach the lost? How do we communicate hope? In this book Long traces the connections between postmodernism and the emerging generations--Generation X and the millennial generations--highlighting implications for evangelism and discipleship. What emerges is a compelling strategy for ministry that will appeal to a generation starved for a sense of belonging.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
insight into today's postmodern generation  Apr 15, 2006
Jimmy Long seems to be in touch with our emerging youth and can see the implications for ministry. This is a good book for emerging pastors who want to do missions to this generation in the 20s and 30s. It is not a book on how to set up an emergent gathering but provides historical background, explanations, and insight into the psyche of Generation-Xers and Millenials. Like the Enlightenment/Modern Era's search for objective truth, Long predicts that this Emerging/Post-Modern culture will also be the driving force behind a long-term cataclysmic change. Today's 20 & 30-somethings are rejecting the Baby Boomers' search for "objective truth". For them, truth is now "subjective truth", one that is relative to each person and each situation. Long's assessment of this generation says the emerging generation is for subjective truth, not objective; for community, not individualism; for virtual reality, not scientific discovery; and is cynical of society, and doesn't see societal progress as our savior. I'm not sure if the youth believe in moral relativism but many in their 20s and 30s are searching for something beyond the tangibility of scientific proof. Objective truth is too cold and harsh. I think our "Star Trek post-Next Generation" is searching deeper into the spiritual realm for the possibility of finding truth. I encourage you to read this book to see how pastors can better do ministry in this emerging generation.
 
A Great Book for the understanding of today's youth.  Feb 19, 2006
Many of us at University Bible fellowship bought this book to help in understanding and ministering to today's college students. I recommend it for all youth pastors and those who want to be more effective in bringing the gospel to the world that is ever changing.
