I found The Next Christians to be full of great ideas and inspiring stories, but a little hard to get all the way through. I had to force myself to finish it, because about half way through, I felt I had the main idea of the book, and just wanted to get on with doing it. What is the main idea? That the Next Christians (those currently under 30) are engaging the world in new and creative ways that seek to restore the world to what God intended it to be. Rather than just focusing on the distant hope of heaven, the Next Christians, or "Restorers," are seeking to live out their faith in very practical and world-changing ways. They are doing this, not primarily out of a motivation to evangelize the lost (though this is important), but rather out of a desire to see the world become what it aught to be. This really is a good book, and has helped me invision what a church of "Restorers" could accomplish.
