The next Christians


The media narrative has been established: the Religious Right, which has defined evangelicalism’s public witness since the early 1980s, is slowly being replaced by a younger generation of evangelicals that are less politically oriented, more focused on social justice, and more concerned with creating culture than critiquing it.

Gabe Lyons, the founder of Q Ideas and the co-author of unChristian, has become the standard bearer for this younger generation of Christians. His book The Next Christians: Seven Ways You Can Live the Gospel and Restore the World serves as his public notice that younger evangelicals are “restoring confidence in their faith and turning ‘Christian’ into a label worthy of the one who has called them to restore.”
