We are happy to introduce you to one of Orange’s newest resources: World’s Apart, a new book by Chuck Bomar
The life stage of 18- to 25-year-olds is completely different than it was in previous eras. In just one generation, we see contrasts that used to take two to three generations to surface. This shift has created frustration and confusion with those of older generations. Parents recognize this is a completely different world and struggle to relate the world of their child. Others throw their arms up in bewilderment, assuming they’ll never understand. And many church leaders wish they’d “just grow up.”
In this book, Chuck Bomar brings understanding, comfort, and direction to all of this. You’ll learn: how the development of higher education has effected much of the separation between generational worlds; the irreversible ways in which this generation has been impacted and how today’s college-age person differs from the typical thoughts and values of older generations; the differences in life pursuits that cause major tension points between generations and how to navigate those. Through profiles of college-age people and testimonies of parents, you’ll explore in-depth issues college-age people face, how they process through them, and what influences their decisions so that you can effectively bring your world together with theirs.
