Many second-generation believers struggle to develop authentic faith. Is it the parenting, the church, the systems?
Or could it be that a background in the church provides its own unique set of struggles? Written from a confessed churchaholic—now an author, pastor, and father—REAL pulls open the curtains and offers an introspective look at what the Bible says to those who’ve grown up in the faith, answering the questions we’ve long been afraid to voice. Why do I desire to sin? What’s the secret to lasting intimacy with God? REAL offers second-generation Christians a lifeline to personal intimacy with God, a biblical mandate to take ownership of their faith, and grace-based tips on continuing a legacy of faith.
Featuring conversations with evangelical leaders such as Jon Acuff, Trevin Wax, Tom Blackaby, Jerry Jenkins, Tullivan Tchivigian, Drew Dyck, Bradley Wright, Andrea Lucado, and Jonathan Merritt.
iFaith, Connecting to God in the 21st Century (New Hope)
We’re a generation raised on instant: Instant formula. Disposable diapers. Satellite TV. GPS navigation. Online check-in. Automatic everything. We’re always plugged in and wired. We’re accustomed to having answers at the snap of our fingers. We’re used to being in control. How does this affect our communication with God? This is the question iFaith seeks to answer. What has life at warp speed done to our souls? Has faith been replaced with a false sense of security? Has the digital and technological revolution made us more impatient with the God who delights in making His people wait? iFaith is a unique look at prayer and faith in the twenty-first century, calling us back to a place of rest and silence and peace with God.
