5.0 out of 5 stars Groundbreaking, well-informed and inspiring, 31 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Millennials: Reaching and Releasing the Rising Generation (Kindle Edition)
In the first third of the book the Orr-Ewings identify what a millenial is (born 1975-1990), and how the formative experiences that shaped them are very different to the Baby Boomers or GenXer's. For example, while Boomers had Vietnam, the Millenials had 9/11, and reality TV. The second part offers an insightful analysis of the confrontation between the rising new generation of millenials and the structures of society, church and the business world. I thought that the authors were scientific without being dry, and inspiring without being scary. They conclude by putting forward a hopeful and surprisingly persuasive new vision for the church, if it wants to be serious about meeting and reaching the up and coming generation. No other book that I have read, about my generation (born '77), describes it so confidently and authoritatively. I think that if pastors and clergy are serious about reaching out, then they will listen carefully to the voices of these two inspiring millenials.
