Sticky Faith Book Club

I’m stealing a great idea from my friend Adam Mclane, the Sticky Faith book club (if you click on the Amazon link below Adam makes a little $$).

I think the blog is a great format for a book club, since so many of us are better connected to the web and our books than ever before.  We can keep the conversational to the North Dallas area, and we don’t have to manage our schedules to get together.

Sticky Faith is a wonderful, practical book based on some new research (but it’s not a research report).  I would love for you to join us.

To join us, buy the book and read chapter one by February 13th, and signup below so we know who you are.

I have a few paper copies, or click here to get a copy from Amazon, Sticky Faith: Everyday ideas to build lasting faith in your kids by Kara Powell & Chap Clark.

A little bit about the book….


Nearly every Christian parent in America would give anything to find a viable resource for developing within their kids a deep, dynamic faith that ‘sticks’ long term. Sticky Faith delivers. Research shows that almost half of graduating high school seniors struggle deeply with their faith. Recognizing the ramifications of that statistic, the Fuller Youth Institute (FYI) conducted the ‘College Transition Project’ in an effort to identify the relationships and best practices that can set young people on a trajectory of lifelong faith and service. Based on FYI findings, this easy-to-read guide presents both a compelling rationale and a powerful strategy to show parents how to actively encourage their children’s spiritual growth so that it will stick to them into adulthood and empower them to develop a living, lasting faith. Written by authors known for the integrity of their research and the intensity of their passion for young people, Sticky Faith is geared to spark a movement that empowers adults to develop robust and long-term faith in kids of all ages.

Each Monday we will write a brief reflection, and then, just like a book club, we’ll open it up for discussion.


The book is 8 chapters long, each week we will discuss a single chapter. Don’t worry– the chapters are pretty short.

How do I join the book club?
