Product description


there are some bright spots in chapters on Transitions to Adult Life and Making Sense of It All where Denton and Flory conclude that these Emergent Adults have turned away from organized religion and traditional churches. A smaller contingent, the Religiously Committed, cling to their faith in hard times. -- Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice
