What are the religious and spiritual lives and experiences like of 18-23 year-olds in the United States today? What social and cultural forces shape their religious views and practices? How do religious faith and practice change between the teenage years and the college-age years? This lecture will present key findings from the National Study of Youth and Religion, a four-wave panel study of American youth conducted between 2000 and 2014, discussing implications both for the sociology of religion and communities of faith.
