Abstract:

Two evangelical leaders discuss key issues that will define the church's faithfulness in the next generation. In the first half Sider raises issues he feels are important for millenials to consider and Lowe responds. In the second half Lowe raises questions of his own and Sider responds. Sidebar reflections from notable Christian leaders (Christena Cleveland, Jim Daly, Jason Fileta, Christopher A. Hall, Jo Anne Lyon, Gabriel Salguero, Carol and Peter Schreck, Nicholas Wolterstorff, and Jenny Yang) add another perspective to each topic. Each chapter concludes with study questions for individuals or small groups.
