One thing that stuck out to me was this quote:
"The problem arises from the inadequacy of preparing young Christians for life beyond youth group." Kinnaman pointed to research findings showing that "only a small minority of young Christians has been taught to think about matters of faith, calling, and culture. Fewer than one out of five have any idea how the Bible ought to inform their scholastic and professional interests. And most lack adult mentors or meaningful friendships with older Christians who can guide them through the inevitable questions that arise during the course of their studies. In other words, the university setting does not usually cause the disconnect; it exposes the shallow-faith problem of many young disciples."
Unprepared and a Shallow Faith are something we can do something about. But not if the church continues to parrot pop-culture's "faith as a feeling" mentality and embraces a general "anti-intellectual" posture. (more from Barna)
I go into more detail as to what we can do here
