E.las.tic Mo.ral.i.ty: An emerging Christian mindset for right and wrong that…


? Creates space for diversity

? Resists judgment

? Extends uncensored acceptance

? Exchanges certainty for mystery

? Stretches the boundaries of belief and behaviour



Elastic Morality is a portrait of a generation painted from a palette of values unlike that of previous generations. It articulates a moral trajectory that is taking young adults of today into places their parents and grandparents would find unfamiliar. The book provides a lens through which thoughtful readers are invited into the heart of what drives 20-somethings today. 

Dr. Marv Penner -- Youth Specialties and AllAboutYouth


“This documentation of relativistic values and expressions of faith among youth leaders is essential reading for those who value effective ministry.  Elastic Morality offers a tough dose of reality. But the authors passionately and creatively reflect on responses to find solutions that preserve the integrity of Christian faith.” 

Reginald W. Bibby, Ph.D. -- Department of Sociology, University of Lethbridge


In order to effectively reach the emerging generation, we must first come to an understanding of who they are and what they believe. Chris, Don, and John provide us with a compelling window into who young adults are and how to best instill in them a faith that has deep and reaching consequences. I’m recommending this book to youth workers, pastors, educators, and parents!”

Dr. Walt Mueller -- Founder and President, Center for Parent/Youth Understanding
