"The church needs young adults and young adults need the church."
From Jay-Z to Jesus is a call to respond to both of those needs - to challenge the African American church to reach out to young adults and to equip congregations with the insights and tools needed to teach the gospel to this generation.
Acknowledging that young adulthood now encompasses ages 18-39, Benjamin Stephens and Ralph Watkins explore the issues and offer the words of young adults themselves as testimony to the spiritual longing and critique of the aging church's ministry.
Each chapter includes critical questions for reflection.
The authors challenge the African-American church to reach out to the lost generation of young adults and to equip congregations with the insights and tools needed to teach the gospel to the postmodern and post-civil rights generation.
