This is a very useful book for those of us who are boomers trying to reach the Gen X crowd. It is a short little book but is loaded with insights as to the differences between boomers and Gen X. It will get you thinking how one may minister to Gen X differently.
Long writes to boomers from a boomer perspective but I, as an Xer myself, was glad to "listen in" on his thoughts. The book is somewhat repetitive--but that could be to drive his point home. I think Long's work is a good introduction to Gen X and, more importantly, to the church's adapting to postmodernity.
Long's experience in campus ministry is extremely evident and lends credibility to his recommendations for ministry changes by the church. I especially appreciate his seeing my generation as one VERY ripe for revival. I heartily agree!
