    1 thought on “The Younger Evangelicals

    1. This was an excellent overview of the major cultural shifts between generations in the Evangelical world. Robert Webber explains different aspects of Christian life, contrasting younger Evangelicals with their parents and grandparents. It's exciting to see this cultural shift as an opportunity for Evangelicals to return to a more historically-sound, ecumenical, community and kingdom-based Christianity. One of Webber's favorite phrases is "the road to the future leads through the past." He's a bi [...]

    2. Webber looks at different phases of evangelical Christianity from the 1900s to the present. His argument is that younger evangelicals, coming of age in the 2000s, are very different even than seeker-sensitive (i.e. pragmatic) evangelicals of 1975-2000. Very good read for young Christians, or people who work with young Christians. The book helps you understand the differences between you, your parents and your grandparents: you may all be "evangelical" Christians, but you all are very different i [...]

    3. This book is good, but unfortunately lacking. It often pits the younger evangelicals against the church planters of previous generations. It seems to believe that younger generations have to start from scratch and ignores modernism as theory and focuses on that time periods "sins." It is worth a read, but keep an open mind.

    4. Such a clear and relieving explanation for anyone who grew up in American evangelical Christianity and consistently struggled inside over methods, practices and meanings that didn't fit with how you understood yourself, the world or God. It was amazing to read 243 pages describing me perfectly.

    5. I think this book was written prior to th term "Millennial." It predicted trends we see now and is insightful to how Millennials think and see the world of faith.

    6. While I think that Webber is spot on in some sections of the book, I think that sometimes he overgeneralized theological trends and societal trends of the twenty-somethings population.

    7. Great information. The writing style I found to be rather awkward and forced, but tremendous research and material.
