Last Spring, I was asked to contribute for a book that the President of the Barna Group was writing, a research project showing how 16-29 year olds have horribly negative perceptions about what being a Christian is all about. This demographic believe Christainity is about being anti-homosexual, judgmental, hypocritical, too involved in politics, clueless and boring. This book, "UnChristian: What a New Generation Really Thinks About Christianity...and Why it Matters" has just been released.
I was asked to respond to 2 questions:
1- What experience have you had with being judgmental and healing from it? Thanks to Amazon reader you can check out my response here.
2- What should Christians be known for in 30 years? How would you envision the way Christians should and could change their image? You can read my response here.
You can read a positive review at Ariel Vanderhoorst blog (Oct 14). I'd recommend you take a moment and peruse the Amazon reviews, too. It's exciting to see a project like this getting some press!
