Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Dean (The Godbearing Life), a professor at Princeton Theological Seminary, opens this absorbing portrait of teenage religiosity by throwing down a gauntlet: the faith of America's teens is "not durable enough to survive long after they graduate from high school. One more thing: we're responsible." Dean, who worked on the National Study of Youth and Religion with sociologist Christian Smith, says that American Christians' emphasis on "a do-good, feel-good spirituality" at the expense of deep discipleship may cost them the rising generation, which is (with the exception of Mormon teens, the subject of an admiring chapter-long case study) largely apathetic about Christian faith. How, then, can religious leaders and teachers inculcate what Dean calls a "consequential faith"--i.e., one that bears fruit for the long haul? She identifies four factors teens need: a personal encounter with God, a strong church or youth group, a sense of being called to duty, and hope for the future. In a refreshingly personal final chapter, Dean outlines her frustration at the daunting task ahead but emphasizes the possibilities if the Christian church decides to take up its cross and follow Jesus. (Aug.)
Library Journal
Written as a follow-up to the 2003-05 National Study of Youth and Religion (NYSR), a research project directed by sociologist Christian Smith, and to Smith and Melina Lundquist Denton's report on it, Soul Searching: The Religious and Spiritual Lives of American Teenagers, this compelling work looks not only at the faith of Christian adolescents but at the challenges to the church in raising its youth. Dean (youth, church, & culture, Princeton Theological Seminary; The Godbearing Life), a United Methodist minister, further explores Moralistic Therapeutic Deism (MTD), the term used by Smith to define the general religious and moralistic approach of today's teen. In three parts, Dean deals with apathy in the church, how teens must claim their own faith story, and how parents, along with the community of believers, impact the faith of teens. VERDICT This highly readable book contributes an important voice to today's discussion of youth, the church, and faith. Essential for seminaries and libraries with ministry collections, it is also valuable for Christian parents, who will benefit from Dean's intriguing insight into forming dynamic and long-lasting faith among their teen children.—Holly Hebert, Rochester Coll.
