Already Gone: Why your kids will quit church and what you can do to stop it
by Ken Ham & Britt Beemer with Todd Hillard
Retail Price: $12.99
Nationwide polls and denominational reports are showing that the next generation is calling it quits on the traditional church. And itís not just happening on the nominal fringe; itís happening at the core of the Faith.
What are the factors that could cause the next generation to be lost from the local church? Ken Ham from Answers in Genesis commissioned Britt Beemer from Americaís Research Group to find out. In the first scientific study of its kind, Beemer surveyed a thousand 20-30 year olds who used to go to Evangelical churches on a regular basis but have since left it behind. The results are not just surprising; they are shocking:
Those who faithfully attended Sunday school are more likely to leave the church than those who do not.
Those who regularly attended Sunday school are more likely to believe that the Bible is less true.
Over half of those who faithfully attended church feel that church is not relevant to real life today.
Statistics reveal a huge disconnect taking place between our children and their church experience. The trends are frightening, but 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!

The Christian heritage of the United States of America is acknowledged as deeply rooted by both historians and scholars. In 1682, William Penn founded the Province of Pennsylvania, a Quaker government based on the ideals of the Bible, which would prove the foundation for the future United States of America. Afterward, many of the colonies that became the United States were settled by men and women of deep religious convictions who in the seventeenth century crossed the Atlantic Ocean to practice their faith freely. When the new governments were formed at the state and national levels, most American statesmen shared the convictions of their constituents that religion was "indispensable to the maintenance of republican institutions" (Alexis de Tocqueville).
