Announcing my Book Storify

It’s officially here! I’m beyond excited and proud to announce the official release of my book Storify: Speaking to Teenagers in a Post-Christian World, published by The Youth Cartel. It’s my deepest hope and prayer that this book will equip youth leaders and speakers everywhere (including pastors!) to reach this post-Christian generation with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Here’s the back blurb:

The gospel is the most powerful, life-changing message the Church has to offer the next generation. So why do so many young people seem uninterested in receiving it? Why are we finding that even many “churched” youth are gospel illiterate, as if they’ve never listened to the hours of teaching we know they’ve received? Why do so many youth walk out of the Church when they walk out of high school?

Could it really be as simple as a failure to communicate in the way our young people learn best?

Inspiring speaker and veteran youth worker Rachel Blom is exploring our current faith landscape, the learning styles of the postmodern teenager, and the power of story. The result? An invitation to re-examine the way we’re communicating the greatest story ever told.
