“With teenage attention spans decreasing as fast as new channels appear on satellite TV, it’s not just a case of presenting the gospel and hoping they ‘get it.’ You have to step into their world rather than screaming across the generation gap,” explains Steve Maltz.
The book has seven sections:
Red—for those who are cynical and bored. Aim: to intrigue and provoke.
Orange—for those who like a challenge. Aim: a gentle introduction.
Yellow—for those willing to listen. Aim: to answer key questions.
Green—for those who are ready to hear. Aim: to make a clear case, sufficient for informed decision.
Blue—for groups of new Christians. Aim: to provide assurance and faith-builders.
Indigo—for more established groups. Aim: to help them cope in an hostile world.
Violet—for those ready to go deeper. Aim: to feed their minds
