    1. Sticky Faith is all about how to make sure your kids stick with their faith after they are out of the home. While it was an interesting topic, I was consistently frustrated with the book because it merely provided tons of tips and suggestions. I did not feel the book provided real wisdom on how to maximize the chances that your kids hung on to Christ after moving out. Many times I was confused on who the audience of the book should be, whether the parents, the youth pastor, or the senior pastor [...]


    2. For several years Sticky Faith has been recommended as one of the go-to books on addressing the exodus of youth from the church and from faith. There has been tons of quality research done on the topic and it has translated into many books. Sticky Faith stands alone though in the audience it appears to be written for. While works like "Almost Christian" and "Soul Searching" are more academic (yet still palatable), Sticky Faith is extremely accessible to the typical parent. And given the authors [...]


    3. I liked the premise of this book and gained a couple of nuggets from it, but overall I found it a little disappointing. Not that it wasn’t helpful, but it just wasn’t AS specific as I’d hoped it would be. I guess I was expecting a bullet list. Do this, this, and this, to help your child’s faith “stick”. But in the end, you can do a lot of these things, but ultimately it’s their choice. I felt that the strongest point of the book was that kids need to have other adult Christians bes [...]


    4. highly recommended by my youth pastor brother in law, I read this book in 2 weeks. It was so encouraging and inspiring to myself as a parent, and answered a lot of questions for me as well. I love the practicality of it and the ideas to cultivate faith in your kids.


    5. I truly love Sticky Faith and am a part of their cohort program. I am knee-deep in it and love love love it. The Fuller Youth institute has done broad research (rather than basing it on narrow, contextualized situations - which is what most of my colleagues in ministry do) about how kids stick with their faith. It informs so much of what I do as a parent and as a pastor for children and youth, responsible for equipping families.The portions on the sticky web of relationships is a game-chagner an [...]


    6. A pretty good book that looks at how we can help pass faith on to our children and help children see their faith as something that will help direct their lives. Some good advice and ideas and encouragement. The authors have some other resources that I might look at."When kids don't feel abandoned - but instead supported - by their parents and other adults, they are more likely to develop Sticky Faith.""Parenting is a lifelong expression of nurturing tenderness and unbridled love. It is a long-te [...]


    7. The Sticky Faith research project comes out of the Fuller Youth Institute at Fuller Seminary. This is the parent's version (there is also a youthworker version). The book is essentially about the leading factors in fostering a Christian faith among young people that sticks beyond high school and carries throughout adulthood.Many of the factors are obvious, but the real value of the book lies in the practical ideas. One of my ongoing struggles working with kids is balancing giving young people wh [...]


    8. I read this book in preparation for a sermon on our "Back to School Sunday." I would actually give it a 2 1/2 star! I struggle with some of the theology, but really appreciate some of the suggestions. For example, what if every church tried to have five adults supporting each youtht in an official capacity, but what if each youth (by the time he/she graduates high school) could identify five adults who know them by name and care about them personally? I also love this advice to parents: "don't d [...]


    9. Outstanding book, thoroughly based on exhaustive research on kids 'whose faith stuck with them through college.' Some key takeaways--Parental support and parental authentic faith will have the greatest impact over everything else. Kids need intentional faith in 1) understanding theology 2) money management 3) time management 4) finding a church community 5) understanding themselves -gifts, skills, personality and their identity in Christ 6) integrating service/generosity in their lives. They als [...]


    10. This was a pretty quick read and good for realigning my views about families and faith. The authors present research findings and offer practical suggestions that I'm sure I will try; however, their suggestions are just inspired by thee findings (as opposed to being research-tested in some way). I appreciated how the book was written to be respectful and informative for people from a variety of faith backgrounds. However, for me personally, it was still a little on the cheesy side (in writing st [...]


    11. This is a wonderful book and I strongly recommend anyone who has children or who wants to make a difference in young people's lives to read it. As a pastor I will certainly be encouraging everyone involved in our children's and young people's ministries to read it and talk about it! It is very challenging but also very practical in its suggestions. What could possibly be more important than passing on a living faith to the younger generation and this book will help readers do that. The content i [...]


    12. Excellent book with practical advice based on a research project documenting children raised in Christian homes and how they transition to college and live out their own faith. There were some surprising findings here, particularly about how families with strong faith do not necessarily talk about sex with their children (what?!?) and don't really proactively plan with them how they will transition to college life. I loved how this book emphasized listening, not lecturing (never explain somethin [...]


    13. Having bought this at a Youth Ministry Conference I guess I misled myself into believing this to be of that topic. However, I am pleasantly suprised that it is more accurately categorized as a book for Christian parents. I realize all that does is display my own ignorance but in a world overfilled with 'why are we losing youth' books this was a refreshingly helpful guide. Full of constructive ideas, supported by research and it amazingly steers clear of the overarching generalizations most of it [...]


    14. Young people raised in the church are abandoning their faith at an alarming rate, usually in the college years. I've seen this play out myself in our former youth group. Although they were all on fire for Jesus in high school, only a couple of them even attend church any longer. This book gives a lot of helpful tips for how adults can interact with teens to help them make their faith "sticky" and lifelong. I really wish I had this book as a youth group leader. However, although my kids are young [...]


    15. Pretty obvious 6 topics for parents wanting their kids to stick with their faith (gospel, identity, conversations, relationships, justice, and bridges out of the home). Two chapters that make the book worth the read are "A sticky web of relationships" and "A sticky bridge out of home." Sticky web of relationships focus on a 5:1 adult to child ratio to provide mentorship and modeling from your church family. Bridge out of home helps prepare the student graduating from high school during the criti [...]


    16. This will open your eyes to why we adults are having so much difficulty getting our faith to stick with our kids as they grow up and move away to making their own decisions about God and faith. You will be challenged to reeveluate the way your express your faith and also be challenged to look at if you are living out the faith you claim to have before you kids and their friends. They are watching and looking for something they can believe in and want it to be relevant to their journey in life. I [...]


    17. By far, one of the best most practical books I've read in a long time. The statistics and outlook provided at the beginning of this book were sufficiently sobering. However, the ideas that then followed were inspiring. This was a great book to read right as I'm on the cusp of having a tween and teen. It is a book that was heavily highlighted and underlined and noted. I thoroughly enjoyed processing and discussing this book along with my mom's group bible study and I'm sure I'll reference it for [...]


    18. Sticky Faith had some great practical ideas on encouraging the growth and maturation of your child's faith. It is mainly concerned with the outcome of your child having a heart to take ownership of their faith for themselves. The beginning was a bit dry and weighted with (American) statistics but otherwise it was quick and easy read. It has left me with a lot to think about and ideas we want to implement in our family. I will be keeping this for reference.


    19. Great information with regards to the importance of cultivating relationships between adults and students. Biggest critique: the student sample was very homogeneous. Not sure the statistics can or would be replicated in other areas of the country. Although the studies acknowledge this flaw in the methods section, it's important to recognize their findings may not translate in more racially, economically, and socially diverse areas.


    20. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this. Such a good read for every Christian parent. This book is based on a lot of recent research that indicates that more and more kids leave the Christian faith in high school/college. The various reasons are surprising and have radically changed the way I talk about my faith with my kids. Great content that's inspirational (as opposed to fearful, which you know I despise) and that gives you action points. SO GOOD.


    21. Sticky Faith: great for parents and ministers!Incredible read! I would recommend pastors, parents, and anyone in ministry or mentoring youth to read this book. Worried about students keeping their faith in the long-term? Read this book! Excellent balance of sharing their findings but acknowledging there are always exceptions!


    22. This was an insightful look into how to keep not just your kids, but kids in general in the church. I liked that this was backed up by research and what the real world had to say. It didn't shy away from the reality that our kids live in. I think this is positive reinforcement for anyone working with youth groups or teenagers.


    23. Grewt ideas for youth workers and parents on how to help students make faith their own. Connections with multiple adults and involvement is key. Its also interesting how introducing your kids to things they'll experience in college during their senior year can build in those conversations before they go. I'm thankful that somehow mom figured out this stuff with me without this book.


    24. The trend of young adults leaving home and leaving their faith is concerning (though not surprising). These authors give background information on this trend, and practical how-to be intentional about interacting with your child so they don't leave the Christian faith for lack of personal commitment or information or relationship. Its good stuff, even for parents of littles.


    25. Good book about living your life in such a way that your children will make their faith their own when they leave home and start college or life away from their home. Would be a good book for a small group study.


    26. Great resource for all parents & even aunts & uncles. Very practical ideas included with discussion questions to explore as a family or a small group. Realistic approach that it is the Holy Spirit that plants the seed of faith & causes it to grow in children, teens & adults.


    27. Great read! Very good for parents, ministers, and really anyone mentoring youth to read. I would say it's a great amount of sharing their findings and still acknowledging that there are exceptions. I could not put it down!


    28. It is a good read. Filled with lots of good practical ideas bouyed by theology and surveys from actual teens. It's main audience is youth directors but I think both parents and family ministers can find a lot of helpful information as well.


    29. As someone who works with college students, this book is wonderful. It talks about the transitional years when young adults make faith their own, and what preparation parents and youth leaders can give in order to help during this difficult time in one's faith journey. Excellent book!


    30. One of those amazing books to which I know I will refer often. I only wish I'd read it sooner. Very helpful advice in terms of creating a family life conducive to your children's faith, but also wise counsel on parenting adolescents in general. Highly recommend for all parents.
