Overview

If you look around in your church today, two-thirds of the young people who are sitting among us have already left in their hearts; soon they will be gone for good.

This is the alarming conclusion from a study Answers in Genesis commissioned from America's Research Group, led by respected researcher Britt Beemer. The results may unnerve you - they may shake long-held assumptions to the core - but these results need to be taken seriously by the church.

If you look around in your church today, two-thirds of the young people who are sitting among us have already left in their hearts; soon they will be gone for good.

This is the alarming conclusion from a study Answers in Genesis commissioned from America's Research Group, led by respected researcher Britt Beemer. The results may unnerve you - they may shake long-held assumptions to the core - but these results need to be taken seriously by the church. Already Gone reveals:

  • Why America's churches have lost an entire generation of believers
  • The views of 1,000 twenty-somethings, solidly raised in the church but no longer attending - and their reasons why
  • Relevant statistical data effectively teamed with powerful apologetics

The study found that we are losing our kids in elementary, middle school, and high school rather than college, and the "Sunday school syndrome" is contributing to the epidemic, rather than helping alleviate it. This is an alarming wake-up call for the church, showing how our programs and our approaches to Christian education are failing...and our children are paying the price. Though the statistics reveal a huge disconnect taking place between our children and their church experience, Already Gone shows how to fight back for our families, our churches, and our world. We can make a difference today that will affect the statistics of tomorrow in a positive and Christ-focused way!

Wonderful Read!
Review by Nay
This book is a huge eye opener. It is so important to instill Christ in our child at a young age. They need a strong foundation in the truth of God's Word from the start. This book teaches how so many kids start to question their faith long before college. This is a must read for parents and churches.
Great book!
Review by Suzanne
This book explains the importance of providing our children with an education that teaches them apologetics. Ken Ham gives practical solutions for training up our children.
Read read read! Share with parents and pastors!
Review by Leslie
Gotta share my story before giving my review. I never have my children attend our church’s Sunday School. Not that I’m against it, but it just didn’t seem right to me with my family. We live 20 miles from our church. I have a 5 year old son, a toddler and a baby. My husband works every day and tries to limit his work very minimum on Sundays. I don’t feel we should hurry in the mornings to rush to town just to separate our family at church (yes, we do attend church but try to rest in the early morning and enjoy our time together before we attend church together as a family). We’ve even been pressured for our children to attend Sunday School. Even pressure to let our neighbors take our children away from us so they can bring them to Sunday school. It really bothers me. And they assume my children are deprived from His Word because they don’t attend Sunday School. But isn’t that’s the parents job? And not weekly but daily and throughout the day! Too many or most parents pass the biblical teaching to their once/week Sunday School teacher. And when it is reached, the parents have no involvement. It saddens me. It’s bothered me so much that one day I googled my thoughts and this book appeared. In the Chapter 2 it talks exactly what I expressed. And the author calls this the Sunday School Syndrome. He’s so on the dot. I was very shocked as this book went beyond my thinking process. This book also made me realize that I was “Already Gone “ by high school by the many reasons the author mentions. Highly recommend this!
Every single parent needs to read this
Review by elisabeth
This is an important read for every parent! We are all trying to do our best and yet kids are still walking away from the church. This book gives some insight into why and ways we can protect our own kids better <3
This is why we need apologetics
Review by Carey
Knowing what kids who leave the church think is vital, and it may not be the reasons you would think. Eye opening and convicting with solutions given. A must read.
If you have kids you need this book
Review by Sommer
I have learned so much from this book! One of my “fears” is that my children will walk away from church and ultimately turn their back on God. This book has made me realize that my children need to know how to defend their faith and how we need to fight back for our children so we can have an upcoming generation that will seek after Him.
