Is there hope in this era of cynicism? Jimmy Long, a campus minister for more than twenty-five years, is convinced that we are in the middle of a societal hurricane. As our culture moves further into postmodernity, now is a time of enormous and rapid change. How do we "do church" in such an era? How do we reach the lost? How do we communicate hope? In Emerging Hope Long traces the connections between postmodernism and the emerging generations--Generation X and the millennial generation--highlighting implications for evangelism and discipleship. What emerges is a compelling strategy for ministry that will appeal to a generation starved for a sense of belonging. (This book is a revised and expanded edition of Generating Hope.)

About the Author:

Jimmy Long (M.Div., D.Min., Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary) is a regional director for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA. His resources include Small Group Leaders' Handbook: The Next Generation, Emerging Hope: A Strategy for Reaching Postmodern Generations and the Emerging Culture Curriculum Kit.

Review:

"When I began struggling with the issues wrapped up in the term 'emerging postmodern culture,' I felt completely alone. If only I had known Jimmy Long! He would have been a wise, rooted, strategic and hopeful guide and friend. Now, anyone engaging with the challenges of ministry in our changing culture can benefit from Jimmy's insights through Emerging Hope. It's clear, understandable, thoughtful and practical, and it will be a significant resource for any church or ministry committed to mission in today's world." (Brian McLaren, pastor and author of A New Kind of Christian)

"With judicious biblical insight, Jimmy Long addresses the spiritual homelessness of our postmodern era and offers wise counsel for reconstructing hope in hopeless times." (Richard Lints, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary)

"A new generation is coming full speed. Jimmy Long has insightfully described its thoughts, aspirations and struggles. And best of all, he's pointed out what it's going to take for the Christian community to embrace these remarkable young people." (Gordon MacDonald, author of Renewing Your Spiritual Passion)

"The success of the church in reaching Generation X requires that we be guided by practitioners who are both theologically informed and culturally attuned. Jimmy Long is among the best." (Stanley Grenz, Carey/Regent College, author of A Primer on Postmoderism)

"With Generating Hope Jimmy Long has made postmodernism and its implications understandable. This is a must-read book for anyone who has a passion to reach the next generation." (Dieter Zander, founding pastor, New Song Church, and associate director of ReIMAGINE!)
