Book Review: The Next Christians, by Gabe Lyons

Recommended. If you’re looking to get a feel for the ethos of young evangelicals, check this book out.

In reading the book, readers will be well-served to remember what they are not reading. Lyons does not set out to provide precise biblical exegesis; he is painting a portrait of an upcoming generation. But breathe a sigh of relief: this is not a book of “relevant” techniques or successful programs. Rather, it is a useful reference for understanding the upcoming generation of Christians: the stories that resonate with them, their tendencies, the shapes of their passions. Thankfully, the Christianity that Lyons describes is rooted in historical orthodoxy and centered in a full-fleshed Gospel that includes creation, fall, redemption, and restoration.
