As a millennial myself I felt like the author had a good understanding of what makes millennials tick. I really appreciated his critique of the subculture that often develops within a church. One of the biggest dangers of this little subculture is becoming too comfortable or too busy doing church activities that you don't develop relationships with unbelievers. Unfortunately I really felt like Stark missed the mark when it comes to this book. If we really want to reach millennials then where we ...more

Everybody is looking for a method. There are worse books on methods, especially "proven" methods, which amount to a soulless repackaging of prescribed programming.

The book poses some useful questions and offers a thoughtful framework and several helpful insights. I appreciated the inclusion of various passages from the gospels and the accompanying discussion.

Ultimately, however, I feel like the book ends where it might more profitably begin: "God is the one who draws people to faith, and our j

The book was ok. It had some small good parts to it, but not a whole lot that would make me give it 4, or 5 stars. It seemed more to me as a strategy to get millennials into the church apart from proclaiming the Gospel to them. I understand that "outsiders" don't understand the language of the Bible, or the language that we may use as Christians, but that is mainly because an outsider's mind (unbeliever) has not been converted to faith in Christ.

Many authors have written about the Millennials as “experts” in understanding that generation. David Stark utilized research done by others, as well as his own experiences, to write his version of how to reach the millennials. In many ways, I wished that he did not use the tag “Millennials” in this book. What I am afraid of is that a well written book on how to draw people into local churches maybe overlooked because of the label. The assessments that he makes about the Millennials and the “meth ...more

What I liked:

The book provided great outreach suggestions and strategies for churches to implement with practical examples of how they had been implemented by other churches.
The author stirred up my passion and enthusiasm for sharing the Gospel and reaching my peer group for Christ.
As an older millennial myself, I could easily relate to the author’s description of the millennial generation as a whole. Regardless of the readers’ age, understanding what makes the millennial

Very easy read, not a lecture on how bad the church is and that the church is evil (some books about reaching youth feel like that). Found it useful.
