At more than 78 million strong, the Millennials—those born between 1980 and 2000—have surpassed the Boomers as the larger and more influential generation in America. Now, as its members begin to reach adulthood, where the traits of a generation really take shape, best-selling research author Thom Rainer (Simple Church) and his son Jess (a Millennial born in 1985) present the first major investigative work on Millennials from a Christian worldview perspective.

Sure to interest even the secularists who study this group, The Millennials is based on 1200 interviews with its namesakes that aim to better understand them personally, professionally, and spiritually. Chapters report intriguing how-and-why findings on family matters (they are closer-knit than previous generations), their desire for diversity (consider the wave of mixed race and ethnic adoptions), Millennials and the new workplace, their attitude toward money, the media, the environment, and perhaps most tellingly, religion.

The authors close with a thoughtful response to how the church can engage and minister to what is now in fact the largest generation in America’s history.

I manage millennials and I didn't find this book too helpful. The 1200 people they 'interviewed' didn't match my interaction with this generation. I struggled to finish this book as I didn't really think it was my experience with this generation.

Can you learn something about the Millennials thru this book? Yes, Father and Son team Rainer attempt to provide insight into the titled generation and in many ways succeed. However, their success is not a result of the research as such, it come more from the thoughts they share. The research is flawed in regards to how they apply the foundational information; is flawed in that their presuppositions influence their interpretations; is flawed in their apparent lack of understanding of one of the comparison groups. The Father attempts to understand his generation without realizing that his knowledge is severely limited into major influences on that generation (he was in diapers AFTER the major events that affected the Boomers attitudes and outlooks occurred, and became aware of his surroundings in a narrow location and time. The Son is a product of the Fathers rearing and a Millennial that appears to see his generation through those glasses. One thought seems to prevail through the book and is repeated ad nasium: The Millennials want to have babies! Surprised? (neither was I). Oh, and for the first time in history "they will be better parents than any previous generation" (or so they believe, so it is therefore fact). The Boomers were self serving and self-centered (guess Daddy was too young to have ever heard about the Peace Corp). Additionally, reading this in 2017 proves interesting in that from this historical perspective we can see that, contrary to the young authors point of view, Racism is alive and well in the Millennial Generation (or perhaps there some other cause for the deaths of persons of color at the hand of young LEO's in the last 24 months). I have already recommended it to friends as a way to pear into the mind of a Millennial and the causative force behind their attitudes (just have to wade through the flawed data).

Thom and Jess Rainer did a great job in collaborating on a timely book. This book has helped me to understand the Millennial Generation and the state they are in. I believe this will help anyone understand this rising generation that is shaping the future faster than any generation of the past. This book shed some light on how the Millennial Generation looks not just at church but the whole world.

Some characteristics of the Millennial Generation may be attributed to youthful idealism enthused by 24-7 instant communication. However, Thom and Jess Rainer have put together a lot of statistical data, and I believe they interpret it well. This is a good read, particularly if you share the authors' Evangelical perspective. Even if not, you will find the book insightful.

Thom and his son Jess have done their homework well. You can’t deny the stats - the Millennials are here! they are a force to reckon with— ignore them at your peril!

While written with a Christian twist this book offers much more in understanding today's young people. As a boomer in management it was a true guide. Very helpful.

I read this book for a number of reasons. For one it was reviewed by Trevin Wax whom I respect and admire. It was also about the generation I am a part of, and thought it would be interesting to see firstly how easily I have given into the prevailing culture and to get some insight on how to reach those in my generation for Christ. Like the authors I am an Evangelical Christian with similar motives. The research conducted also made this book seem attractive. The book did have some interesting facts, but there wasn't enough revelatory info from the research to make it truly great. I found it most helpful when they said that the biggest challenge for Christians is not overcoming objections to the faith but overcoming apathy. So insightful. However the book suffered from a lot of repetition. So many chapters simply stated the same facts from the previous ones. It could have been shortened quite a bit. I was hoping for more info on the interviews themselves, maybe some transcripts of how their conversations went. The whole book had a clinical feel to it. This may be in part to all of the authors confessing their love of numbers and stats. Another fatal flaw of the book is that for all the amazing research the authors did, they still did not go far enough in their analyses. One thing I wish they had touched on more was the issue of same sex marriage and co-habitation. I knew the stats from the book but the question of worldviews and reasons why this generation believes what it does was left largely unanswered. This was dissappointing, because as a millennial I am alreasdy aware of the trends, I just want to know WHY they are happening. I don't know if the authors ever bothered to ask the respondents why they felt the way they did. Perhaps they were just more interested in what they believed as opposed to why.

Overall the book was helpful and I did pause and quote sections to my wife as I read it, but I get the feeling there are probably more helpful books out there.
