    Most excellent, Theophilus! If you have kids, teach kids in a Christian school setting, or work in youth ministry… Or if you work in church ministry in any capacity… You should read this book. If I had discretionary money to buy cases of this book and pass it out I would. It is very good.

    Sean Mcdowell and J. Warner Wallace have teamed up to bring us a practical guide for equipping the next generation with a biblical worldview in their soon to be released book So The Next Generation will Know: Preparing Young Christians for a Challenging World.

Warner Wallace have teamed up to bring us a practical guide for equipping the next generation with a biblical worldview in their soon to be released book So The Next Generation will Know: Preparing Young Christians for a Challenging World. (May 1, 2019) Many books on apologetics and worldviews claim to be a guide in sharing the biblical truth with the next generation, but McDowell and Wallace deliver on that promise: “We’ve written many books that make the case for God and Christianity. Those books describe what is true and why we should believe it. This book is different. We wrote it for a very practical reason: to show you how to teach the truth of Christianity to the next generation.” In showing how to teach the truth McDowell and Wallace have four target readers in mind: parents, youth workers, Christian educators, and people who love young people. Their intentionality is evident throughout the book. Suggestions are provided for each group not only in the text of chapter of the book, but with useful sidebars designated for each target group. These suggestions range from a list of questions parents can ask their kids to polling students for the Christian educator. The training and preparation McDowell and Wallace provide go beyond theoretical and moves quickly and evidently to the practical. For example, in a chapter helping the next generation develop a passion for the truth, one of the challenges is helping young Christians who might be spiritually dispassionate avoid apathy. They suggest the “Two Whys for Every What” approach. They explain that “as pastors, parents, and educators, we’ve all explained what is true to our young people. What we believe about God? What are the claims of Christianity? What does the Bible teach about important moral issues? . . . simple propositional truths about the nature of God or the claims of Christianity may or may not ignite a fire in our young people.” They suggest that for every “what” you offer young people you follow up with two “whys.” The first why is “why is the claim you’re making true?” Young people (contrary to popular opinion) want to know why we believe what we believe. “If we want them to get excited we need to help them see that the Christian worldview is reasonable and evidentially true.” The second why is “why any of this should matter to them.” After describing “what is true and and why it’s supported by the evidence, take the time to explain why they should care in the first place.” How does this truth impact their lives, what difference does it make in the everyday living? How does this change the way they view themselves? How does it protect or guide them? Some of the highlights from the other chapters include the challenge of Generation Z (the generation born between 2000 and 2015), balancing truth and relationship, understanding Generation Z, building a biblical worldview, training versus entertaining, providing life changing experiences, and engaging contemporary culture. Each chapter. along with the sidebars for each focus group, includes activities, teaching methods, and constructive tips. It is backed with the latest research to guide the reader to effectively reach the next generation. This book is not a book on apologetics, you will not learn the different reasons for God’s existence or the evidence for the resurrection, but they include in the appendix a list of resources for gaining that information. And not just a list of other books, but videos, curriculum, conferences, websites, trip resources, sample surveys, and trip itineraries, in the areas of apologetics, theology, and spiritual development. McDowell and Wallace are keenly equipped to write this book. Both have years of experience with training not only young people but other youth workers, parents, and apologists. Sean McDowell is an associate professor of apologetics at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University as well as a part time high school teacher who regularly blogs at seanmcdowell.org. J. Warner Wallace, a cold-case homicide detective, is a Senior Fellow at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview and adjunct professor of apologetics at Biola University with years experience as a youth worker. Between them they have authored, coauthored, and edited dozens of books on apologetics, including:: Evidence That Demands a Verdict, Is God Just a Human Invention?, The Fate of the Apostles (Sean McDowell) and Cold-Case Christianity, God’s Crime Scene, Forensic Faith (J. Warner Wallace). If you pre-order the book and send a copy or screenshot of your receipt to [email protected] you will receive further resources including 25 youth training articles, 15 MP3 audio podcasts addressing issues from the book, a previously unreleased youth training video, and a PowerPoint presentation about the unique characteristics of Gen Z. Details for this offer can be found out: https://seanmcdowell.org/item/so-the-... This is a fine book that should be a helpful resource in training those who are equipping the next generation so they will know the truth.

    If you are a pastor, parent, or in any way involved in youth ministry, this book is an essential resource. The sad and uncomfortable reality is that many youth ministries function as little more than social and/or entertainment clubs. As a result, many students raised in the church still end up walking away when they get out on their own. Why? Because we've failed to equip them with the knowledge of and the ability to defend the Christian faith when they were with us.

The sad and uncomfortable reality is that many youth ministries function as little more than social and/or entertainment clubs. As a result, many students raised in the church still end up walking away when they get out on their own. Why? Because we've failed to equip them with the knowledge of and the ability to defend the Christian faith when they were with us. Combined, McDowell and Wallace have decades of experience working to fix that problem by engaging with students in such a way that they gain not only an intricate knowledge of what Christianity teaches, but also an ability to defend those teachings against even the most hostile objections from skeptics. Throughout this book, they teach us how to do the same. This book isn't just filled with information. Instead, it mostly walks through how we can take practical steps in our interactions with students that will have a lasting positive impact on their faiths. These steps are applicable to everyone from parents, to youth pastors, to anyone volunteering in student ministry. Each chapter also contains numerous examples from the authors' experiences working with students. Admittedly, much of what they say might be a bit scary for those without exposure to apologetics. For example, one of the events they discuss involves bringing high school students to the campus of UC Berkeley specifically to engage with skeptical students and professors. The key, however, is that before the trip, each student undergoes weeks of training so that they are prepared. And because the students have a specific event to train for, they take the training seriously. This is just one of many examples they discuss. As one who had little (if any) exposure to training like this before I went to college, I cannot emphasize enough how needed this is in our churches. While I happened to find the information I needed to engage with the challenges I received from those around me, not every student is so lucky. It would have been much better if all of us were trained beforehand. And with this book in hand, any youth ministry can do just that.

    One of the very best, most practical, hands on books I've ever read in teaching our youth (middle-school to young adult). It is written for parents, teachers and ministers who work with youth. It is not just encouraging us to teach them what we believe, but why we believe it. Encouraging, practical, full of hope, and requiring the adults speaking into the next generation to engage, love, and study what and why we believe ourselves so we can pass it on to them, which is especially important in ou One of the very best, most practical, hands on books I've ever read in teaching our youth (middle-school to young adult).

Encouraging, practical, full of hope, and requiring the adults speaking into the next generation to engage, love, and study what and why we believe ourselves so we can pass it on to them, which is especially important in our current culture. Every parent, educator and youth pastor should own a copy. Some quotes: "The primary reason Gen Z disconnects from the church is our failure to equip them with a biblical worldview that empowers them to understand and navigate today's culture." "If we do not consciously equip young Christians with a biblical worldview, they will unconsciously absorb the ideas of today's culture." "We need to earn the trust to communicate Christian truth to them in a genuine fashion. And that trust is earned through investing our time and energy in getting to know them as individuals." All throughout the book they give hands on and specific tips and ideas to try. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    This book is great for people who are dealing with a group of teenagers. There are some good take always for parents but I would recommend this more to a youth pastor vs parents.

    One of the question we often ask when we pick up a new book is: How do I apply this to my life? Another one is: how do I make an impact to the world knowing these truths found in this book? Often enough, books do have a sort of action plan included in the book. Those parts can be found at the end of every chapters or on the epilogue. However a few page of practical applications is not enough for some heavy truths we might learn from a book. I think that’s the task that has been laid to Sean McDo One of the question we often ask when we pick up a new book is: How do I apply this to my life? Another one is: how do I make an impact to the world knowing these truths found in this book? Often enough, books do have a sort of action plan included in the book. Those parts can be found at the end of every chapters or on the epilogue. However a few page of practical applications is not enough for some heavy truths we might learn from a book. I think that’s the task that has been laid to Sean McDowell and J. Warner Wallace in writing So The Next Generation Will Know. And they did an amazing job of pulling off a practical book that will compliment an apologetics book. So The Next Generation Will Know is the latest book of apologist Sean McDowell and J. Warner Wallace. Renowed for their own works, they came together to deliver a book that will help Christians get down and dirty. The book is geared to basically everyone who wants to teach or already teaching apologetics in the church. It give you the how’s on teaching apologetics and mobilizing the Gen Z to live out and defend their Christian convictions. First, McDowell and Wallace opens your eyes to the reality that some Christians specially the youth are abandoning the faith through stats and personal stories. They also discuss how culture and social media shape the minds of Gen Z spiritually. Then they serve the readers practical things from Scripture and on experience. If noticed a side bar in almost all the pages of the book, it’s not just fancy after thought nor some trivial. If the main content is meaty, so is the side bar. To be honest I’m not into books that has two authors. However this book is a exemption. McDowell and Wallace writing together in So The Next Generation Will Know is a match made in heaven. Aside from sharing their indispensable wisdom in apologetics which is already a great help for Christians, they have a unique background that makes the book even more interesting to read. We get to have glimpses to Sean’s moments with his father, Josh McDowell (the popular apologist) as he teaches his son living out the Christian life. Wallace on the other hand, let us peek on his life as a cold case detective. Different backgrounds but one mission: to help Christians connect to the next generation on defending the faith. For me that’s a runaway hit of a book. You might ask: Do I have to get a book on apologetics to understand this? Of course and it’s a must. However if you have read one, read something online, already expose to the arguments in Christian apologetics or practicing it already, then I could say you don’t have to. If you forgotten what you have read or learned, So The Next Generation Will Know has some refresher points here and there. Nevertheless, this is not a book that will give you all the details of arguments about Christianity like the usual apologetics books. You have to get it from somewhere else. So The Next Generation Will Know is a must read because of it’s accessibility and it reeks tons of practical advice on why and how we teach apologetics. If your apologetics book lacks or doesn’t make a connection in terms of applying apologetics to real life then don’t freet. This excellent book got you totally covered. One of my best reads so far this year. My verdict: 5 out of 5

    A helpful, practical guide to teaching kids and teens why Christianity is true. It focuses on methods and specific examples of how to teach Christian truths, leaving the reasons for Christianity to be covered by other resources. McDowell and Wallace explain that you need to help youth with 3 Rs: reasons (how they think), relationships (who they're with), rhythms (what they do). I like their TAB worldview training model, which tells how to cover the areas of theology, apologetics, and behavior.

I like their TAB worldview training model, which tells how to cover the areas of theology, apologetics, and behavior. It's written for parents, youth workers, Christian educators, and others who want to help youth. Notes Love Responds: Examining the Challenge Before Us 79% of Christian youth walk away from faith during adolescent and teen years (many ages 10-17). Youth are interested in spiritual things. Youth are willing to listen to you if you'll first listen to them. Love Equips: Giving Kids a Worldview That Brings Significance Youth need 3 Rs: reasons (how they think), relationships (who they're with), rhythms (what they do). Love Ignites: Developing a Passion for Truth "The greatest threat to Christianity is found not in the arguments of the atheist but in the assumptions of the apathetic." Challenge isn't convincing youth that God exists or Christianity is true, but in getting them to care enough to talk about these issues. For every "what" you offer, add two "whys." State truth, then explain why it's true and reasonable, by giving philosophical and evidential support. Love Trains: Resisting the Desire to Entertain Rattier Than Train TAB worldview training model: Theology, Apologetics, Behavior. Love Explores: Providing Life-Changing Adventures for Students Suggested TAB activities for youth (most to least demanding) 1. Surveys and conversations 2. Evangelism 3. Teach in family or class setting 4. Create video or blog post 5. Service project in neighborhood (home repairs, errands, cleaning parks, etc.) 6. Visit local university (conduct survey, evangelize, discuss spirituality with student group, etc.) 7. Spend time at non-Christian religious facility or community 8. Serve at local mission or ministry (rescue mission, soup kitchen, etc.) 9.

    I like this book a lot. I think it's an excellent resource for teaching teenagers to grow in the Christian faith. The authors raise a very interesting point that apologetics should be an important part of what teenagers learn as a part of their discipleship. For every "what" (theological truth of Christianity) that is taught to the kids, there should also be two "whys" that are taught alongside-- why is this true (apologetics that defends the validity of this theological truth), and why does thi I like this book a lot. I think it's an excellent resource for teaching teenagers to grow in the Christian faith. The authors raise a very interesting point that apologetics should be an important part of what teenagers learn as a part of their discipleship. For every "what" (theological truth of Christianity) that is taught to the kids, there should also be two "whys" that are taught alongside-- why is this true (apologetics that defends the validity of this theological truth), and why does this matter (how this theological truth contributes to Christian worldview, and how this worldview helps humanity flourish). The authors argue that when teenagers learn about discerning different worldviews from someone they have a good relationship with, they can have more confidence in the validity of the Christian worldview and become less likely to step away from faith. Not only do the authors encourage teenagers to learn apologetics, they also encourage churches and Christian schools to organize events and mission trips for teenagers that requires them to serve as Christian apologists to communities holding other worldviews. The ideas is for teenagers to engage in extensive training for a couple of months in theology, apologetics, and appropriate Christian behavior when interacting with people they disagree with, and then send them. They believe that when the training has a tangible goal and purpose (a.k. participation in the event or the mission trip), the students will be motivated to receive the training and the outcome of the discipleship training will be more effective. I am not totally convinced, because this is something I never experienced. I'm having a hard time imagining high schoolers getting excited about Christian apologetics. But this book definitely makes me want to at least introduce some age-appropriate books on apologetics to my own children. The appendix provided an extensive list of curricula, books, websites, conferences, and apologetics-centered mission trip organizers for teens. I'm probably going to go back to this appendix again and again in the years to come.

    I absolutely loved this book and found it both encouraging and insightful. As a mom of 4, I felt inspired but not overwhelmed with the amount of information or teaching methods presented because every thing seems very doable. Throughout this book, I felt like my eyes were opened even wider than they were two years ago when my family experienced some rough hits from culture while living in Scottsdale, AZ.

However, after I finished So The Next Generation Will Know I felt motivated that I can (and Lord-willing, will) lead my children to live a life that both honors God and adapts a biblical worldview. So The Next Generation Will Know has empowered me to “make a difference” and I think it will empower you, too. As a parent and follower of Jesus, we need more Christian resources like this and influencers like Sean McDowell and J. Warner Wallace but for now, I will praise this book for the life-impacting potential it possesses for those closest to me. If you feel discouraged by the things you witness day-to-day in the media, online or in every day life, I hope you will feel led to carry your cross and do your part to enlighten the world. As a millennial and a parent to four Gen Zers, I truly believe our culture is at a crossroads – we can continue on the path we’ve been traveling on for the last few decades or we can rise up and light up the world. In my heart of hearts, I am praying and working towards a revolution. I hope you and those in your sphere of influence will join me in investing in the young souls who outnumber the rest of our population. * I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Glancing at the summary, I thought it was so similar to Ken Ham’s book that I didn’t need to read it. I already knew people were leaving the church and the faith, Already Gone confirmed it, so why would I need to read another book about it? When I started watching Sean McDowell’s Youtube channel, my view started to change. I have already read J. Warner Wallace’s Cold-Case Christianity and was impressed with it. The interviews that Sean McDowell presented were very polished and well put together. So I decided to see what their book was about and if they could present any new information; and I’m glad I did. McDowell and Wallace write from the position of parents in America (Ham immigrated here from Australia) teaching youth either in church or in school. McDowell and Wallace present practical, daily ways in which to interact with kids and youth to help them form their worldview and possibly help prevent them from leaving the faith. Whether you are a parent, youth pastor, or teacher there are activities you can implement on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.

My ultimate hope is that my students' trust would be in Jesus, and that this trust would result in love for God and others that is rooted in the truth of their biblical worldview that is able to engage their own doubts as well as the skepticism of others confidently. I appreciate that the authors recognized that at the end of the day, we are not the ones who change students' hearts. We are called to be faithful in teaching, equipping, and praying for our kids, while trusting that God is the author and finisher of each of their faith journeys.

    I rarely find a "parenting" book that resonates so deeply and feels so pertinent to the times. There were many moments of my internal voice crying, "Yes!". As both a parent of a teenager and someone who feels like the secular world is my 'people group', I found McDowell's honest assessment of the challenges of this generation and what is needed to face them, spot on.

    This book is intended for parents, youth leaders, and educators who are looking to impact Gen Z and beyond. It's fairly simple premise is to combine healthy relationships, worldview understanding, and apologetics so that kids have the information as well as trust that has been developed over years.

    I really enjoyed this look directed towards educators of young people. The layout style of "extras" on each page is distracting and NOT my favourite but the overall content was an helpful angle on best ways to communicate and relate to Gen Z-ers who are fully digital and questioning. A lot of it was just practical info as to how, in GENERAL, this current upcoming generation processes information and technology and views life.

    This book is a great book for any youth worker, youth pastor, parent, or Christian educator who wants to train the next generation to have a biblical worldview. It has provoked me to have serval ideas and challenges to how I am currently and can do a better job at reaching and training the next generation up in Christ.

    This is a great book for parents, teachers and youth leaders to read about the iGen or Gen Z generation. There are a lot of practical tips in the book to help us teach our children/teens a Biblical worldview. In a world where only about 4% of the youth have a Biblical worldview, this is very important.

    Such an important, relevant book for the times! I've read quite a few apologetics books, and I like that this one is a "how to teach worldview" rather than a "what to teach in worldview" type of book. Really useful for parents, teachers and youth pastors. Such an important, relevant book for the times!

    Very useful for Christians who want to learn how to begin equipping gen-z to understand and hold on to the Christian faith. Good for ministers, parents, Christian educators, grandparents, and anyone who loves a young person.

    If you have a Gen Zer or work with Gen Zer or love a Gen Zer...this book is for you. So many practical helps for talking/training in apologetics and worldview to your Gen Zer. Listened to this on audible....but want to get a hard copy to be able to use as an easy reference guide.

    A good and practical book for anyone in youth ministry, Christian education or a parent or grandparent interested in the faith journey of students. The appendix with resources is of considerable value.

    This book gave me a lot to think about. It's helped me look our kids today in a fresh light and gave me good advice and encouragement. This book gave me a lot to think about. It's helped me look our kids today in a fresh light and gave me good advice and encouragement.

    An important call for the church to wake up and reverse the trend of 7/10 leaving the faith.

    We need to step it up. Today's kids aren't the same as the past. Technology is growing kids up faster than you think We need to step it up. Today's kids aren't the same as the past. Technology is growing kids up faster than you think

    Pretty good book for parents of middle and high school kids. Perhaps parents of younger kids should read it ahead of time...
