Barna research reports that nearly two-thirds of U.S. 18–29-year-olds who grew up in church have walked away as an adult and we regularly hear of Christian leaders who have left Christianity. What if that’s your child? How do you relate to them and share the truth of Jesus? Coming up on Equipped, gifted apologist Lisa Fields will take your questions about responding well when someone you love rejects the Christian faith.
