Young adults are drifting, wandering, and turning away from the church because they feel let down by the faith passed down from previous generations. The church often seems superficial and irrelevant to their deepest concerns. Meanwhile, they are assaulted by a culture that pushes and pulls them in many directions, none of which resemble the narrow path that leads to life.
In Jaded Faith, Jarod Osborne confronts these issues head on. He engages the young adult reader spiritually and intellectually, helping the reader navigate the six most common side trails that distract people from the narrow way: irrelevance, hypocrisy, suffering, evolution, rationalism, and relativism. He also addresses the "secret" seventh reason for leaving the faith: sin. Each chapter addresses one of the side trails and guides the reader through an encounter with the gospel and back to the narrow way of Jesus.
