Synopsis

Religion and Spirituality in America The Ultimate Teen Guide by Kathlyn Gay

Religion and Spirituality in America: The Ultimate Teen Guide provides an introduction to some of the diverse religious practices, traditions, and expressions in the United States and focuses on how teenagers view their particular religious faith-or lack of it-what they believe, what conflicts they encounter, and how they relate to others whose religions differ from theirs.

Reviews

About 40 percent of today's teenagers are curious enough about religion and spirituality to visit faith-based websites each month, and this series of narratives and points of fact punctuated with explanatory text helps by describing a range of beliefs and their applications, focusing on learning and tolerance. It describes the religious diversity now in the US, the concept of the separation of church and state, the relationship between religion and politics, religious restrictions and protections, religion in everyday life, religious rites of passage most closely associated with the teen years, lesser-known belief systems such as Wicca, what agnostics and atheists believe, and the process of getting to know others

...A worthy...attempt to provide thoughtful, up-to-date resources to support teenagers in the United States on their quests for religious understanding. -- Lisa Kimball, 2009 International Journal Of Children's Spirituality
