"Of a group of 10 to 15 people," writes Gavin Calver, "only one other person and myself are still going for God. Those who packed it in claimed to be disappointed with Jesus. Really they were disappointed with church."

Today, still in his twenties, Gavin is on the leadership team of Youth for Christ, but his personal pilgrimage hasn't always been easy. It was tough living up to the expectations of a preacher's son and he knows that you cannot survive on inherited faith.

This is an 'insider's' view on why young people give up on God, and an attempt to help them develop faith robust enough to survive the adolescent years.
- Publisher.

As Gavin Calver had to discover for himself, you can't survive on inherited faith. He found it tough to be the son of a preacher man. Conscious of the eyes and expectations upon him, he got thrown out of Sunday school, slunk off to smoke in the car park during sermons, and eventually abandoned church entirely in favour of Wimbledon football club, girls and booze. Today - still a young man - he leads British Youth for Christ. His passion is to reach the generations that continue to be lost to the faith. This new edition brings his own story up to date and spells out his remarkable and ambitious vision of how the missing can be shown the path to personal faith. About 25% of the material is completely new.
