“Will my kids leave the faith?” It's a legitimate concern. Drs. Sean McDowell and John Marriott reveal why kids leave Christianity, what happens in deconstruction, and how parents can both prevent and respond to faith crises.
Christianity to a young person isn’t this historic 2000-year-old faith that is diverse and believed all around the world. It’s basically the few people who are living it out in front of me, whether that’s Christians they know at their church, whether it’s their parents, or maybe some other public figures that they see. So if they look at these Christians and don’t think their life is captivating and compelling and backing up what they say, a certain urgency with the gospel, then why on earth would they believe it? -- John Marriott
