There are five living generations in the United States and each sees the world through a different lens. As a result, it is often assumed that tension between the generations is inevitable. However, it is possible to bring the generations together by understanding each perspective and creating opportunities for positive intergenerational contact. Understanding the Generations provides an in-depth introduction to the five living generations and offers recommendations for how to effectively blend the generational perspectives in religious settings.
