About-

THEY'RE BRIGHT. THEY CAN BE BRUTALLY HONEST. THEY CAN BE CYNICAL. THEY'RE SPIRITUALLY HUNGRY. HOW WILL YOU TELL THEM ABOUT JESUS?

There is a new, "postmodern" generation with a vast, unmet spiritual hunger. They don't know Jesus. In fact, they don't know much "about" Jesus. They need someone who can relate the truth of the gospel to them in terms they understand. But how does one communicate this transforming truth to a generation increasingly suspicious of religious words and cynical about religious claims?

Robert Henderson invites you to look over his shoulder as he addresses the brutally honest questions of faith posed by a young postmodern man named Chip. Chip's questions echo those of a spiritually hungry generation uncertain of where to look for answers--and totally unimpressed with what they see as powerless religion that offers no hope for change. Discover how to introduce the next generation of seekers to the radical grace of Jesus--grace that will make a difference in their lives.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Henderson gives substance to words often ignored or trivialized by contemporary Christianity: radical obedience, costly discipleship, repentance, idolatry, dominion of God, servanthood, and holiness. Henderson's commitment to a holistic agenda is timeless--an important read for disciples of any generation."
--Ron Sider, president of Evangelicals for Social Action, professor of theology and culture at Eastern Baptist College

"In a narrative style, Henderson supplies an undercover systematic theology that challenges, confronts, and confounds the postmodern mindset. This youthful veteran pastor and theologian leaps the generation gap and sets forth a rigorous evangelistic agenda for a new millennium."
--Reverend Phil Olson, vice president of church relations for Evangelicals for Social Action, director of Netword 9:35
