    1. Adam Hamilton is a Methodist Pastor from Kansas City He summarizes in 120 pages why the church is turning off the 20 30 year old ex Christians and atheist s His purpose is not to prove anything but to answer the questions from his personal beliefs, showing that Christians do not all follow the pattern of belief that young people believe He backs this with church history and cultural reasoning He says from a study which he conducted that there are 5 reasons young people rejected Christianity beca [...]

    2. I have a lot of questions regarding religion, and this book answered a good many of them The author minister is amazing such a fantastic way of not alienating people unless of course you are super conservativebut they would benefit the most by hearing and processing what he has to say I m glad I read it on my phone, because I can easily refer back to it.

    3. I wish I could give this one a million stars It is wonderful It has the potential to change the world if we could everyone in it to read it.

    4. SUMMARY More and young adults have opted out of Christianity and the church The reason Christians.When young adults talk about the problems they have with Christianity and the church, they often name certain attitudes and behaviors they believe are practiced too often by Christians judging others, condemning people of other faiths, rejecting science, injecting politics into faith, and being anti homosexual With his familiar style, Adam Hamilton tackles these issues and addresses the how s and w [...]

    5. Adam Hamilton is an intelligent and godly Christian, whose books always hit the mark This is an excellent read that hits all the hot buttons that Christians are dealing with today I recommend it highly.

    6. Adam Hamilton is an excellent preacher and author, and in this easy to read book, based on five of his sermons at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Kansas City, he gives an excellent accounting of some of the obstacles Christians create mostly inadvertently, hopefully that hinder others from experiencing God in Christianity Adam writes with great humility and clarity, sharing where Christians make mistakes, but also sharing examples of when Christians get it right.

    7. Good read, nothing really new though Rev Hamilton provides a decent read for laity and clergy alike as they learn to dialogue in a culture with divergent views of life and faith.

    8. A wonderful, thought provoking book by Adam Hamilton, who definitely got it right it when he authored this book.

    9. When Christians Get It Wrong 978 1 426 70914 2I am not a Christian In fact, I consider myself to be an ex Christian, at least in part because of some of the issues that author Hamilton brings up here in this excellent book And yet, I ve read some wonderful material from Christian scholars and pastors, and now I can add Hamilton s book to that category Hamilton has set out to catalog and address the issues that most seem to drive young people away from the church today With scripture in one hand, [...]

    10. Adam Hamilton is one of the leading modernizers in American Christianity He s the senior pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, KS, named the most influential mainline church in America by The Church Report His previous book is Seeing Gray in a World of Black and White, which this author has also reviewed Hamilton has been a repeat speaker at Willow Creek Church s annual leadership summit.One of the biggest challenges for the modern Church, writes Hamilton, is appe [...]

    11. Like many politically progressive Christians I know, I cringe nearly every time someone professing to speak for my faith gets on TV Nearly every time, these pundits espouse views I do not share At their worst, they look to me as if they are painting over their personal bigotry and vitriol with a whitewash of religion In this book, Pastor Hamilton courageously takes on some of these widely held positions Christians being judgmental of others,Christians condemning people of non Christian faiths, a [...]

    12. My church small group has now read several of Hamilton s books together, and I seem to detect a running theme of attempting to put Christianity into context In this case, he explores reasons young adults are removing themselves from the church The topics range from the fairly obvious the church s response to homosexuals, friction between science and religion to the deeply theological dealing with other religions, the nature of evil Obviously, as a Christian, I believe these are all discussions t [...]

    13. When Christians Get It Wrong by Adam HamiltonAbingdon Press, 2010120 pagesNon fiction Christian4 5 starsSource Received a free e galley via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.This is a quick read addressing some of the points that have turned many young people away from Christianity and the church I identified as some of those issues had turned me away when I was younger These are covered in five chapters looking at unchristian behaviors, Christian attitudes toward science and politics, [...]

    14. I give Adam Hamilton credit for tackling a wide variety of issues in such a slim volume Bearing in mind that this book is intended for young adults, it s a worthy effort.If one thinks of this book as a platform for conversation and an inspiration to a thoughtful, Jesus centric practice of Christianity, it s a good read Otherwise, it would be tempting to be frustrated by the overly simplified diagnosis of Christians who get it wrong as well as Hamilton s recommendations for Biblical interpretati [...]

    15. When Christians Get It Wrong is a thought provoking but easy read, aimed at addressing the big five Hamilton bases his work around an interview with a young atheist, using the young man s concerns as a launching point to explore the issues of unchristian behavior, politics and science, other religions, why bad things happen, and homosexuality I do not personally fit into a neat category in terms of my faithI am much too liberal for many conservative Christians and much too conservative to be lib [...]

    16. In his book When Christians Get It Wrong, Adam Hamilton takes a look at perceptions and actions that chase people away from organized religion There are some parts of this book that I agreed with I nodded my head, recognizing the error Or I saw it for the first time in myself, and bowed my head in shame But there are other parts that made me raise an eyebrow Parts that had me thinking, Is that really scriptural Notice, I m not telling you which parts are which That s up to you to decide for your [...]

    17. The author writes, Following Jesus can be about open doors than locked fences, about serving people than judging them, about joyful living than angry fighting Great book for anyone who, like me, is grieved that the words and actions of some Christians seem to have in common with the Pharisees than Jesus The book is an equally good read for those who have rejected Christianity because of what Hamilton calls the big five obstacles to faith When Christians Are Unchristian Christians, Science an [...]

    18. If you look at the people Jesus hung around with in his life it wasn t the religious leaders nor the ones who looked down on everyone who sinned He came to call the sinners not the righteous This book is a great reminder of this It addresses issues like evolution, homosexuality, other religions, and when things go wrong in life The Pastor takes each topic and looks at some typical Christian responses and then brings things from Jesus teaching to light.I felt like he does a good job examining the [...]

    19. I really enjoyed this book With a small group of friends, we also watched his video clips and discussed the chapters The author had on going conversations with a young man who was turned off by Christians and the Church because of the attitudes and actions of offensive Christians He found that young adults are leaving the Christian faith in greater numbers than ever The author wrote this book in response, to encourage us to examine ourselves to see if we are getting it right or getting it wrong, [...]

    20. Adam Hamilton wrote this book in response to a man and also surveys he met that provided feedback as to why many in our society are not interested in attending or joining a church Christians are percieved by many as judgmental, anti intellectual, anti science, hypocritical Topics covered when Christians are Unchristian, when bad things happen, dealing with homosexuality, politics and science He offers great examples of when Christians get it right Very readable, I really enjoyed reviewing this b [...]

    21. Every Christian should read this book I know, you ve heard that before, but really, this little book is a life changer Every young person who has been turned off of religion should also read this book As Christians, we have become concerned with rules than we are with love, and that is not why Jesus died on that cross We have got to be loving and less judging of others if we want to lead our young generations to the saving grace that God offers This book is a good starting place for us to reth [...]

    22. Though the title may be off putting to some, Adam Hamilton provides a quick read about why so many young adults are disenchanted with Christians and Christianity Though there are some typographical errors, it is put together well Since the book is slim, don t expect in depth analysis about how to live a Jesus centric life Some helpful insights on how to address some of the malaise young people feel towards Christians All in all, a decent read, especially for it s intended audience.

    23. I think the issues addressed in this book represent np many of the same concerns I had growing up as a Christian I thank God for my mother who taught me never to look at others when studying to become a Christian because I would be very disappointed by the actions of most people who call themselves Christians but rather read and study the Bible and pray This is an excellent book to open up discussions with both teens and adults.

    24. I read this book in a group It was very good for discussion Adam s ideas are very simple, but also thought provoking Some strong questions are addressed and for me were answered I really like the way he explains major issues such as When Bad Things Happen and how science and the Book of Genesis relate The book left me wanting to read .

    25. Each chapter could have been it s own four week bible study Still the premise is great It doesn t hep to break down the sterotypes much, but it helps to remind moderate minded Christians that we are the quiet norm, no the radical right or far left This is really a Cliff notes version of all the topics but could be broken down into a 1 2 year study focusing on each part.

    26. This is a wonderfully written, thoughtful and insightful book about the way Christianity Christians are viewed by Young Adults and what Christians can do to attempt to change the negative images and stereotypes It is also a very quick and easy read.I look forward to reading other books by Adam Hamilton.

    27. I was worried I wouldn t like what this guy wrote, especially since his talk at the Global Leadership Summit was less than inspiring However, I believe he hit the nail on the head Read it if you ever feel frustrated by how much Christians can hurt themselves and others It actually gave me some hope.

    28. I got this book for free when I renewed my subscription to Sojourners Magazine Great, easy read Adam speaks from his own humble experiences and provides the theological tools to help both Christians and non Christians alike come to a better understanding of what the Christian faith is supposed to be about, providing many examples of what it means for Christians to get it right.

    29. My friend Becky recommended this book and I am glad I finally read it Very thought provoking Explains why the younger generations turn away from traditional religion The author who is a pastor isn t afraid to tackle tough subjects and his answers make sense It encouraged me to be less judgmental and inclusive which is how Jesus showed us how to live Worth the read.
