The Next Christians by Gabe Lyons

From the description on Amazon:

“I recommend The Next Christians, which will give you great insight into the hopes and aspirations of the next generation…."  Chuck Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship

“Provocative, yet massively optimistic!” Louie Giglio, pastor and founder of the Passion Movement

Gabe Lyons is optimistic that Christianity’s best days are yet to come. His best-selling book, UnChristian, revealed the pervasiveness of culture’s growing disregard for Christians. Now, in The Next Christians, Lyons shows how a new wave of believers are turning the tide by bringing the truth of the Gospel to bear on our changing, secular society. 

“Restorers,” as Lyons calls them, approach culture with a different mentality than generations past. Informed by truth, yet seasoned with grace and love, these believers engage the world by drawing it to the sensibility and authenticity of the Christian life. 

You can be one of these “next” Christians and change the negative perception of Christianity by living a life that is faithful to the Gospel, yet credible and coherent to your friends and neighbors.

Mike Says: This is one of the most thought provoking books I have read in quite some time.  It was both challenging and uplifting.  Although I thought some of the conclusions or applications in the book watered down the Great Commission, the ideas presented by Lyons are stimulating and very useful.  I recommend this to anyone wondering what steps both Christians and churches can take to witness to Christ in today's society.
