The Spiritual State of the Emerging Generation: A Conversation with Christian Smith

As the period of emerging adulthood grows longer, young people are becoming more alienated spiritually.  Notre Dame Professor Christian Smith has done extensive research on the spiritual state of the emerging generation.  His research has led him to label the emerging generation’s religion, “Moralistic Therapeutic Deism.”  On the inaugural program of “Thinking in Public,” Dr. Mohler discusses the implications of this research with Dr. Christian Smith. Giving tremendous insight into what exactly is going on in the hearts and minds of young people as they make decisions about morality and faith, this conversation is a must hear for those who want to influence the rising generation.
