Mend the Gap

Can the Church Reconnect the Generations?

by Jason Gardner


Price: £8.99
Publisher:IVP(Inter Varsity Press)
I have to be honest this book is touted as an analysis of the generational gap aimed at youth-workers, Church Leaders and Parents in order to stop the rot, for want of a better term. However for me, though it may be a book for Youth Workers and church -leaders it isnít one that really helps in the generational rebalance. It is an interesting book for a youth-worker, but (though not simplistic) much of it is obvious and it is biased to the youth with the emphasis being on change being needed within the older generations to solve the problems. Definitely an interesting book for a youth-worker as it does have some good material on youth spirituality and society.
