From the Back Cover:

Younger Christians are leaving the church in droves, frustrated and disillusioned by the track record of American Christianity. Older Christians, who still lead most churches, are concerned about this trend. But the generations don't see eye to eye on many things.

In The Future of Our Faith, two evangelical leaders forty years apart in age discuss some of the biggest issues challenging Christianity today and into the future. The book models and cultivates an intentional, charitable, and much-needed intergenerational dialogue and includes additional reflections from Christena Cleveland, Jim Daly, Gabriel Salguero, Nicholas Wolterstorff, and others.

"This book is a sign of hope--a conversation bridging the generational gap. It is simultaneously an invitation to accept the church as it is and to dream of the church as it could be."
--Shane Claiborne, author and activist (www.redletterchristians.org)

"I have long looked to Ron Sider for his wise counsel, and I increasingly look to Ben Lowe for his leadership on issues of faith and justice. This book is an invitation and a challenge for us to partner across generations for the sake of the kingdom."
--Noel Castellanos, CEO and president, Christian Community Development Association (CCDA)

"An honest and important dialogue. The Future of Our Faith will be a blessing to the church today and a model for the church to come."
--Karen Swallow Prior, author of Booked: Literature in the Soul of Me

"A wealth of wisdom, conviction, and hope from two leaders who refreshingly defy tired religious and political categories. If you care about the future of Christian witness in a post-Christian America, you'll read The Future of Our Faith."
--Katelyn Beaty, managing editor, Christianity Today

"A multifaceted examination of the hazards and hopes of our time across generational lines. Ron Sider and Ben Lowe are two of the best Christian thinkers I know. I can't imagine a more dynamic duo to write a book like this."
--Jonathan Merritt, author of Jesus Is Better Than You Imagined
