The church needs young adults and young adults need the church, the authors assert. This book is a call to respond to both of those needsto challenge the African American church to reach out to the lost generation of young adults and to equip congregations with the insights and tools needed to teach the gospel to the postmodern, post-civil rights, post-soul generation. Acknowledging that young adulthood now encompasses ages 1839, Ralph Watkins and Benjamin Stephens explore the issues and offer the words of young adults themselves as testimony to the spiritual longing and critique of the aging churchs ministry.

Ralph Watkins was an international trade analyst at the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) for 37 years. From 1986-2005, he was the Program Manager for Production Sharing. During that time, he supervised and co-authored 19 annual reports on the use of U.S. components and materials in foreign assembly plants, focusing on the cross border integration of manufacturing in North America and the Caribbean Basin. During 2006-2007, he was Deputy Director for the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) and contributed a chapter on “The China Challenge to Manufacturing in Mexico” to Oportunidades en la relacion economica y comercial entre China y Mexico, edited by Enrique Dussel Peters (United Nations, 2007). Mr. Watkins was a visiting scholar in the College of Business Administration at the University of Texas at El Paso for a semester in 2009, where he lectured on international trade and helped organize a conference on the U.S.-Mexico partnership. On retiring from the USITC in August 2012, he formed Americas Trade Analysis, LLC, which provides assessments of factors influencing the competiveness of industries in the Western Hemisphere producing goods for regional and global markets.
