Generation Y is known for their tattoos, social networking, and iPods, in addition to their support for social justice, racial diversity, and a holistic sense of community. What is less well-known is that Gen Y also is the generation of broken homes, self-indulgence and insecurity. Dropping the "models for success" approach, as well as overused and tiresome acronyms, Josh James Riebock offers readers a journey deep into the soul of a generation that is slowly being transformed from within. Pastors and church leaders will value this honest and hopeful look at restoring a broken generation with the life-changing power of the Gospel.

Y is the generation of tattoos, cell phones, social networking, and iPods. It is the generation of authenticity, social justice, racial diversity, and community. But it is also the generation of broken homes, school shootings, immense performance pressure, loneliness, self-indulgence, and insecurity. Christians have largely failed to bring restoration to this 70 million member group of young people. What are we missing? And what are the consequences if it doesn't change? Foregoing formulas, models, and snappy acronyms (which don't work), Josh James Riebock offers readers a journey deep into the soul of a generation that is slowly being transformed from within. Whether pastors, volunteers, church leaders, friends, or members of generation Y themselves, readers will value this honest and hopeful look at restoring a broken generation with the life-changing power of the Gospel.
Josh James Riebock has been a successful youth pastor and is now a sought-after speaker at conferences, colleges, and churches across the country. He speaks both to Generation Y and to people who are involved in leading this generation. He lives with his wife, Kristen, in downtown Austin, Texas.
