Rachel Held Evans:
She explains what she believes is the key to revitalizing the church and defends her exit from evangelicalism. She thinks that many church leaders make the mistake of thinking millennials are shallow consumers who are leaving church because they aren't being entertained. "I think our reasons for leaving church are more complicated, more related to social changes and deep questions of faith than worship style or image. If you try to woo us back with skinny jeans and coffee shops, it may actually backfire. Millennials have finely-tuned B.S. meters that can detect when someone's just trying to sell us something. We're not looking for a hipper Christianity. We're looking for a truer Christianity."
