From places like John Piper's den, Al Mohler's office, and Jonathan Edwards's college, Christianity Today journalist Collin Hansen investigates what makes today's young Calvinists tick.
Church-growth strategies and charismatic worship have fueled the bulk of evangelical growth in America for decades. While baby boomers have flocked to churches that did not look or sound like church, it seems these churches do not so broadly capture the passions of today's twenty-something evangelicals. In fact, a desire for transcendence and tradition among young evangelicals has contributed to a Reformed resurgence.
For nearly two years, Christianity Today journalist Collin Hansen visited the chief schools, churches, and conferences of this growing movement. He sought to describe its members and ask its leading pastors and theologians about the causes and implications of the Calvinist resurgence. The result, Young, Restless, Reformed, shows common threads in their diverse testimonies and suggests what tomorrow's church might look like when these young evangelicals become pastors or professors.
Collin Hansen (MDiv, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) serves as the editorial director for the Gospel Coalition. He previously worked as an associate editor for Christianity Today magazine and coedits the Cultural Renewal series with Tim Keller. He and his wife belong to Redeemer Community Church in Birmingham, Alabama, and he serves on the advisory board of Beeson Divinity School. You can follow him on Twitter at @collinhansen.
Robert Widdowson4 Stars Out Of 5December 24, 2008Robert WiddowsonI need to admit upfront that i haven't read this book. But I read the article upon which the book is based. Collin Hansen did an excellent job presenting Calvinism to a younger generation. The article sparked my interest in Reformed theology. Thanks, Collin. It's all I read these days.

Rev. Doyle Peyton5 Stars Out Of 5April 10, 2008Rev. Doyle PeytonAn interesting and insightful look into the growing phenomenon of the younger generation's passion for the Reformed faith. The future of the church looks like it will rest in the hands of bright, passionate, theological men who are shunning the market driven fads of the previous generation. A wonderfully readable book.
