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.

The Spiritual State of the Emerging Generation: A Conversation with Christian Smith
Words From the Fire: Hearing the Voice of God in the 10 Commandments
If God has spoken, then the highest human aspiration must be to hear what the Creator has said. God has indeed spoken, through the Ten Commandments, and Al Mohler explores this revelation of God and the implications for His people. The promise is to hear, to obey, and to live. These “Ten Words” tell us who God is and what His people should look like.
