Most Christians know the heartache of seeing a loved one abandon the faith. Tom Bisset has talked with young people-and adults-who, through neglect or willful resolve, have abandoned their Christian faith. With sensitivity, he's listened to their stories. Why do they do it? Could anyone have said or done something that might have made a difference in that decision? Teenagers are not the only ones at risk for faith "exiting." Adults also fall away, and their defection is just as tragic. Bisset discovered four basic reasons for faith rejection, and offers suggestions that can help readers minister to someone who struggles with his or her faith. This book offers help and hope to anyone who loves someone who has left the faith.
Author Tom Bisset has talked with those who have left. With openness and honesty, he gets to the heart of the issue by asking basic questions. You'll find insight and practical advice for communicating the Christian faith to the next generation.
"Tom Bisset has broken new ground in his book Why Christian Kids Leave the Faith. It is a most relevantly refreshing analysis of the problem of prodigals and how to help them. It is must reading for every parent and for every other person who is concerned abou the spiritual bell-being of our children."
"Christians who leave the faith baffle the rest of us. How could they do that? Whose fault is it? But far more than questions are involved. There is also pain--pain for those leaving and for those left. Tom Bisset explores the questions and the pain and offers understanding and hope. By taking these people seriously and searching the Scriptures carefully, he has provided us a wonderful rendition of something that is best designated, I think, as holy wisdom."
