Gabe Lyons is the founder of Q—a learning community that mobilizes Christians to advance the common good in society and co-author of the landmark book, UnChristian: What a New Generation Really Thinks about Christianity and Why It Matters. Prior to this, he cofounded Catalyst, the nation’s largest gathering of young Christian leaders. As a respected voice for a new generation of Christians, he has been featured by CNN, the New York Times, Fox News, and USA Today. Gabe, his wife, Rebekah, and their three children live in New York City.
Gabe Lyons is optimistic that Christianity’s best days are yet to come. His best-selling book, UnChristian, revealed the pervasiveness of culture’s growing disregard for Christians. Now, in The Next Christians, Lyons shows how a new wave of believers are turning the tide by bringing the truth of the Gospel to bear on our changing, secular society.
Chuck Colson, host of the daily radio commentary "Break Point"and founder of Prison Fellowship, recommended Gabe Lyons' book The Next Christians on his show, saying "Gabe Lyons is one of today’s truly promising young evangelical leaders...I appreciate Gabe’s fidelity to Scripture and his focus on the fundamental truths of Christianity. But what’s really exciting is how he’s applying the Truth in new ways, ways that really speak to young people." Read the transcribed show or listen to the broadcast here.
Hear the story of how Gabe and his wife responded to their son's Down syndrome diagnosis in a creative, life-affirming way. "It was just using my gifts in storytelling and photography," says Lyons, "But this is what Christians have to do everywhere. They show up to counter the corruption overflowing in our world and not just talking about how bad it is, but saying, let’s be a part of displaying for people what the Kingdom of God might look like when it shows up."
