Emerging Hope: A Strategy for Reaching Postmodern Generations

Front Cover
InterVarsity Press, Aug 18, 2004 - Religion - 247 pages
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.)

This is a good book. It is a bit laborious to read at some points. Overall, if you desire to reach the emerging generations, read it. Read full review
