In an interview with Christianity Today, Ed Stetzer shared that according to LifeWay research among young adults who had attended church regularly for at least a year in high school, 70% stop attending regularly for at least a year between ages 18-22. However, 35% of these had returned to attending twice a month or more by the time they were surveyed for the study. This means that about 4 out of 10 kids leave the church and NEVER RETURN.
Truth Matters aims to equip parents of high school and incoming college students to prepare their sons and daughters for the challenges to their faith they will likely encounter. In addition, high school and college students will find this an invaluable resource as well. This book is a quick read and can be profitably studied individually or in discussion groups. It is a sure antidote against critical challenges to the Christian faith.
