Ground-breaking research presented in the bestselling book, unChristian, reveals that 16-29 year olds perceive Christianity to be anti-homosexual, judgmental, hypocritical, too political, sheltered, and proselytizing. This DVD curriculum kit developed by the Fermi Project moves the conversation forward by providing key insight into how Christians can change these perceptions when we become more like Jesus. Including insights from Gabe Lyons, David Kinnaman, Shane Claiborne, and Rick McKinley, this innovative study will move participants to not only be more aware, but to actively engage with their community. Includes DVD, leader's guide, and interactive website access.

Based upon research by the head of the Barna Group, Unchristian examines the differences in attitudes toward some current social issues between older and young christians.<br /><br />Not surprising there is a great difference between the age groups. Younger christians are more influenced by the attitudes of society in general and their nonchristian firends in particular. In most cases the younger christian attitudes are nearly identical to society at large.<br /><br />While attitudes about abortion are most similar between the age groups, attitudes toward homosexuality are least alike..<br /><br />I stopped reading after a few chapters because the topical issues showed such similarity in responses and in treatment by the authors. In short, the authors suggest that christians will have more influence if they actively engage society by participating, and by showing more tolerance and understanding of pluralistic attitudes. the authors criticize traditional christians as hypocritical in the behavior towards personal sin and the sins of others.
