"What Lyons gives us here, in spades and with proof texts, is the good news about the state of the Good News in tomorrow's America. Those who have despaired that even the label `Christian' might be tarnished beyond credibility, much less affection and influence, will find a thousand reasons to rejoice here. Chock-full of examples and stories, Lyons's work also is full of brilliant insights and piercing applications of traditional verbiage to new ways of being in this world." -Phyllis Tickle, founding religion editor, Publishers Weekly
In the wake of the stunning findings his book unChristian shared with the world about younger generations' disenchantment with Christianity over the past few decades, Gabe Lyons became an active participant in most every discussion about the future of Christianity in the U.S. and the world. The Next Christians, a six-session video curriculum with participant's guide, takes into account recent efforts at Christian renewal, addressing the significant challenges that could undermine the viability of Christianity if the faithful do not employ a completely new outlook. Lyons looks ahead, citing current day models and examples, of how Christianity over the next 100 years can and must adapt, as he optimistically paints a picture of how Christianity's best days just might lay ahead as a new generation rediscovers their faith in this unprecedented new era in the West.
