On this edition of the program Michael Horton talks with Princeton Seminary professor Kenda Creasy Dean about her new book, Almost Christian: What the Faith of Our Teenagers is Telling the American Church. Kenda, along with sociologist Christian Smith, was one of the researchers for the National Study of Youth & Religion project which surveyed thousands of teenagers over a five year period. In her new book she observes that “if churches practice moralistic therapeutic deism in the name of Christianity, then getting teenagers to church more often is not the solution (conceivably it could make things worse). A more faithful church is the solution.”
