In his six-session small group Bible study DVD, The Next Christians, Gabe Lyons cites modern day examples and looks ahead over the next century to how Christians can adapt to a new way of living their faith.
This DVD is designed for use with The Next Christians Participant Guide (sold separately), and features interviews with notable thinkers and leader such as Tim Keller, Andy Crouch, Scot McKnight, Phyllis Tickle and Jon Tyson.
In the wake of the stunning findings that Unchristian, Gabe Lyons and David Kinnemans book, shared with the world about younger generations disenchantment with Christianity, Gabe Lyons became an active participant in many key discussions about the future of Christianity in the U.S. and the world.
The Next Christians study takes into account recent efforts at Christian renewal, addressing the significant challenges that could undermine the viability of Christianity if the faithful do not employ a completely new outlook. In it, your small group will discuss the ideas presented in the book, The Next Christians.
Lyons looks ahead at how Christianity can and must adapt over the next 100 years, as he optimistically paints a picture of how its best days might lay ahead as a new generation rediscovers their faith in this unprecedented new era in the West.
The companion Participant Guide (sold separately) features discussion questions, background information on each character, space to write down thoughts, a helpful Leaders Guide, and much more (95 pages).

PastorJackOrlando, FLAge: 55-65Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Six distinctives are on target.February 15, 2011PastorJackOrlando, FLAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The emerging generation of Christ-followers value, to borrow a phrase, high touch. According to Gabe Lyons, twenty-first century believers are committed to taking a hands-on approach to "restoring" all of God's creation, not just humanity, back to the Creator's original plan.
In this sequel to his best-selling book UnChristian, in which he outlined how Western Christianity is diminishing in influence, Lyons describes six characteristics of The Next Christians, the new generation of Christians who "see themselves on a mission, partnering with God to breathe justice and mercy and peace and compassion and generosity into the world." The heart of the book is a fleshing-out of the six distinctives with real life stories.
It's not that we haven't heard this message before (the lampooning of crusade and Evangelism Explosion-style outreach, and word-without-deed Christianity is hardly prophetic), but Lyons is a fresh and authoritative voice. The vision of Ã¢â¬Ëthe next Christians' sounds strikingly like that of the Jesus People in the Ã¢â¬Ë70s, and even the reformers before them who launched missions agencies and built schools, hospitals, and orphanages. Ã¢â¬ËThe good news about the end of Christian America' is that a new generation of Christians is re-dreaming the dream _ and putting hands and feet to seeing it realized.
Readers looking for some hope in impacting the culture with the Gospel will be encouraged by the vision presented by Lyons in this well-written and researched analysis.
