Close to 60 percent of young people who went to church as teens drop out after high school. Now the bestselling author of unChristian trains his researcher's eye on these young believers. Where Kinnaman's first book unChristian showed the world what outsiders aged 16-29 think of Christianity, You Lost Me shows why younger Christians aged 16-29 are leaving the church and rethinking their faith. Based on new research, You Lost Me shows pastors, church leaders, and parents how we have failed to equip young people to live "in but not of" the world and how this has serious long-term consequences. More importantly, Kinnaman offers ideas on how to help young people develop and maintain a vibrant faith that they embrace over a lifetime.

Dr. Elwood Davis and his wife Bernice arrived in Mombasa, Kenya in January 1911 as medical missionaries with the Africa Inland Mission. This book features letters, diary entries and rare photographs showing the story of God's humble servants laboring to share the truth about Jesus Christ in Africa. Their grandson, Art Davis, has combed through the family archives to produce this book. The first section tells the pioneering story of Elwood and Bernice Davis in Ukambani and Kijabe. The second part shows the following generations in Kenya - Linnell and Martha Davis and their four sons, Van, Art, Ray and Alan. The book, which spans 100 years of God's faithfulness to the Davis clan, focuses on mission work in Africa but also tells of various family members serving as missionaries in South America. Art Davis, well-known for his ability to spin a tale, provides plenty of fast-paced adventures in this book from his years as a boy in Africa - running into rhinos in the bush - to his family's time among the Pokot people in the Rift Valley. From Elwood Davis's foot safaris in the bush to Art Davis's helicopter trips in northern Kenya, the purpose of the Davis family in Kenya for 100 years has remained the same: to serve a faithful God and point others to God's saving grace.

Helicopter parents—the kind that continue to hover even in college—are one of the most ridiculed figures of twenty-first-century parenting, criticized for creating entitled young adults who boomerang back home. But do involved parents really damage their children and burden universities? In this book, sociologist Laura T. Hamilton illuminates the lives of young women and their families to ask just what role parents play during the crucial college years. Hamilton vividly captures the parenting approaches of mothers and fathers from all walks of life—from a CFO for a Fortune 500 company to a waitress at a roadside diner. As she shows, parents are guided by different visions of the ideal college experience, built around classed notions of women’s work/family plans and the ideal age to “grow up.” Some are intensively involved and hold adulthood at bay to cultivate specific traits: professional helicopters, for instance, help develop the skills and credentials that will advance their daughters’ careers, while pink helicopters emphasize appearance, charm, and social ties in the hopes that women will secure a wealthy mate. In sharp contrast, bystander parents—whose influence is often limited by economic concerns—are relegated to the sidelines of their daughter’s lives. Finally, paramedic parents—who can come from a wide range of class backgrounds—sit in the middle, intervening in emergencies but otherwise valuing self-sufficiency above all. Analyzing the effects of each of these approaches with clarity and depth, Hamilton ultimately argues that successfully navigating many colleges and universities without involved parents is nearly impossible, and that schools themselves are increasingly dependent on active parents for a wide array of tasks, with intended and unintended consequences. Altogether, Parenting to a Degree offers an incisive look into the new—and sometimes problematic—relationship between students, parents, and universities.

On August 6, 2011—three months after members of Navy SEAL Team Six killed Osama Bin Laden—Taliban forces took down a United States helicopter, call sign “Extortion 17.” The attack killed the Air National guard crew, seven unidentified members of the Afghan military, and seventeen members of Navy SEAL Team Six—warrior brothers from the same Team had killed Osama Bin Laden just ninety days prior. Don Brown, a former U.S. Navy JAG officer stationed at the Pentagon and a former Special Assistant United States Attorney, re-creates the wartime action, tells the life stories of the elite warriors our nation lost on that day, and tears apart the official military explanation of the incident contained in the infamous Colt Report, which reveals either gross incompetence or a massive cover-up. Call Sign Extortion 17 focuses on a series of key factors pointing to a conspiracy, including the inexplicable disappearance of the black box, autopsy evidence arbitrarily destroyed, the failure to acknowledge reports of Taliban infiltration into the Afghan military, and the Taliban’s vengeful campaign of targeting SEAL Team Six after U.S. government officials revealed that the elite fighting unit was responsible for killing Bin Laden. Were the seven Afghani soldiers aboard that helicopter really undercover Taliban who either maneuvered the chopper within easy range of being shot down or blew it up from within? Through a serious examination of the evidence, and the lack thereof, Brown tackles the issues of the case as only an experienced military prosecutor can.
