I am nearly done with this book and am very surprised at how easy it was to read for non-fiction. It is actually written as a fictional story based on the author's experiences as a pastor.

This book addresses the ever changing world and what churches (and really any organization) have to take into consideration in order to survive with the technological savvy younger generation without alienating the older generation. It can be tricky to convince those that are set in their ways that change is good. The author is also able to pull in scripture to illustrate his points as well as asking questions of the older generation about things that they did that moved the church to make changes which may have met with resistance from their parents.

The dynamics are very interesting and I fall somewhere in the middle, liking some tradition but realizing we have to appeal to the younger generations to draw them into the church
