A qualitative study that looked at the lives of 88 young men in the United States - their coming of age and their spirituality. In the telling of their stories, we can hear them speaking in the midst of changing family, economic, and gender relationships as they come of age, pioneering dynamic and constructive ways of being men - today. The intent of this compilation of stories is to encourage the church to "hear into the voices" young men in their own community and congregation.
"Provides reflective research identifying common themes based on the interviews of eighty-eight young men from very different walks of life and suggestions as to how we can provide opportunities for young men to see God at work in the world and in the church. Young men live in a culture that emphasizes self, work, sports, consumerism, and personal experience. This book suggests how the church can lift up forgiveness, repentance, sacraments and Scripture. I recommend reading this book to pastors and lay leaders who wish to reach out to the young men who are dropping away from the church in record numbers" -- Leonard H. Bolick.
