Back Cover of the Book

Were you born between 1946 and 1964?

Do you remember:

Do you now:

If you answered yes to most of these questions, you need to crack these pages and learn about this influential generation. Once on the sidelines as self-centered adolscents, baby boomers are now taking over the leadership of our government, businesses, and churches.

Whether you're a boomer or a non-boomer, Help! I'm a Baby Boomer will help you fight the battle for Christian values inside America's largest generation.

HANS FINZEL is a card-carrying baby boomer, born in 1951. After living a self-destructive lifestyle, he turned to Christ during his college years. He then pursued training for vocational ministry at Columbia Bible College and Dallas Theological Seminary, where he earned a Th.M.

This book is dedicated to two of my closest friends, one on each side of the Atlantic:

Mike Wilson & Craig Weaver

"A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity."
Proverbs 17:17


I am indebted to my dear wife, Donna, for her patience and servant spirit during the birth of this book, which, unfortunately, coincided with the birth of our twins. For the excellent discussion questions, I thank my brother of encouragement, Craig Weaver. I also very much appreciate Scott Last for his insightful chapter on "Singlehood." Of course my editor, Afton Rorvik, needs heaps of credit. And, finally, I thank Hewlett-Packard for creating my laptop computer without which I never would have attempted or completed this project on the run.
