Humbled by these...

Anytime you work hard at something and pour your heart into it, you want people to like it and find it useful.  Well, that said, I've been extremely humbled by what people have said about my newest book, Worlds Apart: Understanding the Mindset and Values of 18-25 Year Olds.

Chuck Bomar gives very keen insight into the minds and hearts of what often can be a confusing generation to try and understand. While some give up or ignore trying to understand them, Chuck is someone who has  served with this age group and has studied and written about them them for many years. I always read everything Chuck writes because he writes with not just his research and experience but out of passion, love and belief in this generation."

"From one of the leading experts on college students, Chuck Bomar, World's Apart gives us a solid, clear and empowering resource for coming alongside these emerging adults. When I want to learn about college students, I read Chuck Bomar."
Chap Clark, PhD
Professor of Youth, Family, and Culture at Fuller Theological Seminary

"Personally, as the father of three adolescents, this book was an important and relevant read for me. Professionally, as the president of an evangelistic ministry, this book was an essential and strategic read. Chuck Bomar's "Worlds Apart" is a timely and compelling work for anyone who wants to more effectively reach 18-25 year olds....[they] are the future of our communities, our churches, and ultimately, our world. We need to invest in them if we are to invest in a brighter future. Bomar's research and practical insights show us how."
Kevin Palau
President, Luis Palau Association

"...Chuck gives us a deep perspective for parents from the front lines of ministry.  Wondering what your college students might be thinking right now?  Chuck can tell you."
Reggie Joiner, Founder and CEO of Orange

We -- the church -- haven't had a clue how to connect with college-age students for a long time. Peek inside an average church and it shows. Before we race off to construct lame programs and structures that miss the mark, we could all benefit from increased understanding.  Thankfully, Chuck Bomar has arrived with this book that offers just that.
_Mark Oestreicher, The Youth Cartel
"...Chuck combines a pastors heart with cutting edge research in a way that will help you lead your church and your family"
Chuck Bomar has become a leading voice on the issue of how to reach college age people. Chuck's authority comes not just from his understanding of the issues involved, but because he has great relationships with many college age adults.  He's refreshingly clear on how all of us, regardless of our age or stage in life, can build authentic relationships with younger adults.  You'll not only love what Chuck has to say, you'll love how what he has to say will impact your life."

Put A Face On Them

We all know how divided our world is. Not surprising for anyone. But how to navigate this context does seem foreign for most. I have many thoughts on this, but here I will issue one in hope of providing help for someone. For now I will simply say this: put a face on the person. It is so easy to talk about people that hold a different position than you do as some sort of "category." But these are real human beings we are talking about. People who have a history that informs and shapes their views - just like you and me. These are people who are created in the image of God and loved deeply - regardless of belief or creed - and therefore have dignity and deserve respect. It's funny. The people that tend to criticize others over an issue tend to be those who don't have a loving relationship with someone holding the view being criticized. This means there is no empathy. It means the practice of listening is almost impossible. With no relational contact the argument
