TL;DR: Smith and Denton's "Soul Searching: The Religious and Spiritual Lives of American Teenagers" as discussed by the authors explores the role of societal influences on adolescents' religious and spiritual lives.
Abstract: Soul Searching: The Religious and Spiritual Lives of American Teenagers Christian Smith & Melinda Lundquist Denton (2005) New York: Oxford Smith and Denton's vivid accounts of teenage lives give readers an enlightened understanding of challenges teens face, religious experiences they have, and the significance of adolescent religiosity and spirituality in their lives "The inattention to youth religion works to our detriment" (4), the authors contend as they address the reality of adolescence as a stage when changes in religious preference are most likely until they reach 18 years of age Conceptual themes are generated that reflect lived experiences of adolescents and valuable empirical data collected by the National Survey of Youth and Religion (NSYR) (2002-2003), including Moralistic Therapeutic Deism, and consideration of societal influence These themes capture the essence of adolescent religiosity and spirituality that stimulate the reader to examine the data for this population more attentively The book contains seven chapters Chapter one invites readers into the lives of "Two Baptists Girls" (9), through which they learn that teens live through a diversity of "religious and spiritual beliefs, practices, experiences, identities, and attitudes" (26) The authors provide sufficient information about the girls to paint a mental portrait of their religious diversity Chapter two presents statistical findings from the NSYR (2002-2003) which provide a general synopsis of religious and spiritual lives of adolescents in the United States Next, in chapter three the authors delve into the characteristics of adolescents who consider themselves "religious seekers", "spiritual but not religious", and "nonreligious" (72) Chapter four discusses themes which developed from the qualitative interviews conducted with the adolescents "Persistent stereotypes" common in American culture are challenged (119) Chapter five emphasizes the significance of understanding how cultural and institutional contexts shape American adolescent religion A concept commonly disregarded by parents and other adults Chapter six takes a closer look at Catholic teens and speaks to their "lower levels of religiosity" (207) Chapter seven examines adolescent religiosity and the influence on positive life outcomes This is a promising area for future research for several disciplines The authors succinctly examine NSYR findings of religious and spiritual adolescents and share important data on their religious experiences, characteristics, and background The information is pertinent for adults who work with youth One significant conclusion is that "the majority of US teenagers tend to be quite like their parents when it comes to religion" (68) This finding leads the authors to address adolescent religion in a social context In a factual and tactful manner, they note that "most American youth share much more in common with adults than they do not share" (191) The authors adroitly guide the reader in using an objective lens to consider the role of societal influences on adolescent religiosity and spirituality They challenge the statement made by those who study American religion that teens are "spiritual but not religious" (73) and consider this to be a minor percentage of teens in the United States Since the majority of teens "had no clue" what the term 'spirituality' meant when questioned(78), the authors develop arguments based on the NSYR and qualitative interviews they conducted that teenagers are unaware of religious practices and lack the ability to articulate their religious experiences …
