"Restless, entitled, bloated self-esteem--pick your pejorative. Commentators have slung them all at those born between 1980 and 2000. Amid this barrage, how refreshing to encounter Shaping the Journey of Emerging Adults. Rather than throwing stones, the authors extend a hand by showing how to guide and disciple twentysomethings. This book is crammed with wisdom and couldn't have come at a better time. Indispensable reading for anyone who loves the younger generation."
"Whether you're an older adult ministering to the next generation or a younger adult with a heart for your peers, this book is an accessible, hopefuly guide for effective ministry to emerging adults."
"When it comes to young adults, the American church seems to be stuck between handwringing ("Why are there no twentysomethings in our church?") and finger pointing ("Why don't those people grow up?"). Neither of these responses are particularly helpful. Thankfully, Sundene and Dunn sidestep this lose-lose response and suggest a relational approach, not a program. Shaping the Journey of Emerging Adults is praxis at its best: well-researched and theologically informed, yet real-world practical."
"It is a fact that today's emerging twentysomethings face challenges never imagined by their parents. Discipling them has never been more urgent. For these reasons, Shaping the Journey of Emerging Adults is a timely book. Jana and Rick offer a way beyond fads into the depths of life in Christ for young adults. If we the church would face the future, we must read this book."
