How much do today's young people value religion? What is their view of God? The author, who has taught sociology at Furman since 2009, is part of a research team involved in the National Study of Youth and Religion. Under the primary direction of Christian Smith of the University of Notre Dame, the ongoing project is following more than 2,500 adolescents from their teenage years into their early 20s. By surveying these young people at different stages of their lives, the researchers are developing a comprehensive picture of how adolescents manage and interpret religion, and how this process changes as they make the transition into young adulthood.
