I think the research sited in my previous post is taken from a new book on the religious lives of American teenagers called Soul Searching. The conclusion is that most teens are “therapeutic, moralistic deists.” I have to read the book for my internship this summer. It should be a good read. Anyone involved with working with youth in the church should pick it up.
