Questioning "new and improved" programs that distort authentic Christianity in order to keep young people in the church, Andrew Root articulates how we can instead help them experience God in our secular age. He provides an understanding of the "nones" and "moralistic therapeutic deism"; and explores Paul's idea of faith as encounter with divine action.

Questioning the search for new or improved faith-formation programs, leading practical theologian Andrew Root offers an alternative take on the issue of youth drifting away from the church and articulates how faith can be formed in our secular age. He offers a theology of faith constructed from a rich cultural conversation, providing a deeper understanding of the phenomena of the "nones" and "moralistic therapeutic deism." Root helps readers understand why forming faith is so hard in our context and shows that what we have lost is not the ability to keep people connected to our churches but an imagination for how and where God could be present in their lives. He considers what faith is and what steps we can take to move into it, exploring a Pauline concept of faith as encounter with divine action.
