Close to 60 percent of young people who went to church as teens drop out after high school. Now the bestselling author of unChristian trains his researcher's eye on these young believers. Where Kinnaman's first book unChristian showed the world what outsiders aged 16-29 think of Christianity, You Lost Me shows why younger Christians aged 16-29 are leaving the church and rethinking their faith. Based on new research, You Lost Me shows pastors, church leaders, and parents how we have failed to equip young people to live "in but not of" the world and how this has serious long-term consequences. More importantly, Kinnaman offers ideas on how to help young people develop and maintain a vibrant faith that they embrace over a lifetime.

Dr. Elwood Davis and his wife Bernice arrived in Mombasa, Kenya in January 1911 as medical missionaries with the Africa Inland Mission. This book features letters, diary entries and rare photographs showing the story of God's humble servants laboring to share the truth about Jesus Christ in Africa. Their grandson, Art Davis, has combed through the family archives to produce this book. The first section tells the pioneering story of Elwood and Bernice Davis in Ukambani and Kijabe. The second part shows the following generations in Kenya - Linnell and Martha Davis and their four sons, Van, Art, Ray and Alan. The book, which spans 100 years of God's faithfulness to the Davis clan, focuses on mission work in Africa but also tells of various family members serving as missionaries in South America. Art Davis, well-known for his ability to spin a tale, provides plenty of fast-paced adventures in this book from his years as a boy in Africa - running into rhinos in the bush - to his family's time among the Pokot people in the Rift Valley. From Elwood Davis's foot safaris in the bush to Art Davis's helicopter trips in northern Kenya, the purpose of the Davis family in Kenya for 100 years has remained the same: to serve a faithful God and point others to God's saving grace.
