Product description

Why do younger Christians prefer an iPhone to a hymnal or a kneeler? Why is playing chess with someone in Australia via the Internet more appealing than sitting in a pew to listen to a 30-minute sermon? How is it that Facebook has attracted 550 million people who will never see one another, when the average church can't get a pew-full of believers between 18 and 32 to show up in person? Leonard Sweet knows the answer, and it has nothing to do with young Americans holding onto childhood, or being overly self-involved, or not wanting to give up their pet sins. Instead, he says, the problem is that the church has held fast to the Gutenberg model, while the rest of the world has gone digital. The digital generation is driven to create community in every possible way, and when they don't find connection in the church they leave the church in favor of authentic relationships outside it. Gutenbergers, it turns out, are unequalled when it comes to building buildings, but not when the need is to create community.
