On Monday, June 22, “Gunny G Online” reported WorldNetDaily released its newest “WND Best-Sellers” list. In second place is Already Gone by Ken Ham and Britt Beemer warning of the catastrophic loss of young adults from America’s evangelical Christian churches.

“Research shows that an alarming number of young adults are leaving church in middle school and high school. Over 60 percent of children who grow up in the church will leave it as young adults. Why is there a massive exodus at such a young age?” the book asks.

Ham, president of Answers in Genesis and the acclaimed new Creation Museum, and Beemer, chairman of America’s Research Group, surveyed 1,000 young adults who have left churches and found a surprising source for this exodus.

The book suggests a “Sunday school syndrome” is contributing, by focusing on inspiration and morality of Bible stories rather than how to defend the authority of God’s Word.

“Already Gone” argues that if a child is unable to defend the historicity and fact of Genesis, then he or she will quickly be disillusioned with the church.

“Ultimately, if we are unable to defend Genesis, we have allowed the enemy to attack our Christian faith and undermine the very first book of the Bible,” the book says.

A Shock to the Church

May 19, 2009

[The following post was originally published in Ken Ham’s personal blog, “Around the World with Ken Ham.” Ken is the founder and president of Answers in Genesis and the author of numerous books, including Already Gone published by Master Books.]

A new book entitled Already Gone, authored by highly respected market researcher Britt Beamer (from America’s Research Group) and me, will be released this coming Tuesday.

We believe this book is going to be a shock and a wake-up call for the church. In fact, I believe this is the most important book I have ever authored or coauthored. The contents are based on statistical research Britt Beamer conducted for Answers in Genesis (and paid by one of our generous supporters). We interviewed people aged between 20–29 who went to church when they were younger, but no longer go to church. And we only included participants who attended conservative evangelical churches so that the results are the best they could possibly be.

But we discovered that in the church things are much worse overall.

The purpose of the research was to find out why they left church—what caused them to do this.

The results are shocking and a real wake-up call. If God’s people take this research to heart, it could revolutionize Read the rest of this entry »
