Product Description

Though largely unschooled in the history and traditions of the church, many young people have returned to the more traditional aspects of worship and this return to orthodoxy pervades every aspect of their lives--politics, education, sexuality, relationships, and career. This swing to religious observance has often driven wedges between them and the people, careers, and faith communities they love. Despite this, Carroll found that they are happy with their choice. In this ground-breaking book, Carroll gets to the heart of these young believers and reveals their deep attraction to tradition, longing for truth, and determination to change the world. And she anticipates that the trend started by this core group of young Christians will only grow stronger-with the new faithful "working overtime to spread their faith, the future of orthodoxy in America looks bright."

    I am only about a quarter through but am impressed by the observations of the author. Though many of the references seem to be in the context of Catholicism, so far, the principles of the trends are transferable to protestantism.This book was researched pre 2002, when this movement would have been less perceptible than it is today. It is to the authors credit that she detected it and dug into it.As a person interested in furthering the faith and reaching others, I look forward to her conclusions and how they might be applied to this purpose.
