Book Summary:

In innumerable discussions and activities dedicated to better understanding and helping teenagers, one aspect of teenage life is curiously overlooked. Very few such efforts pay serious attention to the role of religion and spirituality in the lives of American adolescents. But many teenagers are very involved in religion. Surveys reveal that 35% attend religious services weekly and another 15% attend at least monthly. 60% say that religious faith is important in their lives. 40% report that they pray daily. 25% say that they have been "born again." Teenagers feel good about the congregations they belong to. Some say that faith provides them with guidance and resources for knowing how to live well. What is going on in the religious and spiritual lives of American teenagers? What do they actually believe? What religious practices do they engage in? Do they expect to remain loyal to the faith of their parents? Or are they abandoning traditional religious institutions in search of a new, more authentic "spirituality"? This book attempts to answer these and related questions as definitively as possible. It reports the findings of The National Study of Youth and Religion, the largest and most detailed such study ever undertaken. The NYSR conducted a nationwide telephone survey of teens and significant caregivers, as well as nearly 300 in-depth face-to-face interviews with a sample of the population that was surveyed. The results show that religion and spirituality are indeed very significant in the lives of many American teenagers. Among many other discoveries, they find that teenagers are far more influenced by the religious beliefs and practices of their parents and caregivers than commonly thought. They refute the conventional wisdom that teens are "spiritual but not religious." And they confirm that greater religiosity is significantly associated with more positive adolescent life outcomes. This eagerly-awaited volume not only provides an unprecedented understanding of adolescent religion and spirituality but, because teenagers serve as bellwethers for possible future trends, it affords an important and distinctive window through which to observe and assess the current state and future direction of American religion as a whole.

Book Summary:

There are well over one hundred different views of the nature of human existence; though the Bible may rule out many of these, there still remains a large number that are all compatible with Scripture. The Bible never explicitly defines the nature of the soul or spirit, which is actually quite puzzling or even ironic, given that one major aim of Scripture is spiritual development and ultimate questions about the soul. In fact, Judeo-Christian thinking on those questions has been evolving over the course of four thousand years. This book documents that evolution as a man named Abram left Babylon four thousand years ago, journeying through the lands and the philosophies of civilizations preceding him by many more thousands of years, while he and his descendants (both physical and spiritual) unpacked their understanding of our inner being—the human soul—and the afterlife. That journey is followed to the present day, and examines how a critically thinking Christian can embrace a theology of the human soul that is fully compatible with modern scientific findings, including explanations for consciousness, mind, and soul.

Book Summary:

The Documentary as seen on PBS. Noted by Google ' as a best book of 2008 A companion to award-winning producer Morgan Atkinson's documentary of the same title, this work draws us into the geographical landscape of Thomas Merton's life in America, a landscape that was intrinsic to his spiritual journey. Containing a considerable amount of rich material unused in the documentary, Soul Searchingis alive with the narrative of those who either knew Merton well or passionately care about him: Father Daniel Berrigan, Rosemary Ruether, Martin Marty, Paul Elie, and many others. Their insights are linked to the places 'from the Abbey of Gethsemani to the Redwoods Monastery in California, from New York City to Christ in the Desert Monastery in New Mexico that both nurtured and shaped Merton. The picture that emerges, through both the narrative and vivid photography, is filled with provocative insights into the interior landscape of one of the spiritual giants of modern times.

Book Summary:

A brand new soul. His first lifetime. It can't be that difficult, can it? The innocence of the question Jack poses, as he leaves the world he knows so well and dives into the complexity of life, allows us a chuckle. New and naive, this soul is bombarded by the senses and restrictions of physical existence-yet once death releases him back to familiarity, he begins an intriguing journey of self-discovery. The extraordinary beauty and characteristics of our spiritual nature are brought into focus as we accompany Jack on his journey. Time and again, he takes on his challenges-stumbling, failing, learning-with his steps often mirroring our own. An innate desire propels Jack onward, allowing us insight into the world we know so well and the tantalizing realms that beckon us. And we see that it can be that difficult as we catch a glimpse of Heaven and walk to the edges of Hell."

Book Summary:

The sixties were a tremendously important time of transition for both civil rights activism and the U.S. film industry. Soul Searching examines a subject that, despite its significance to African American film history, has gone largely unexplored until now. By revisiting films produced between the march on Washington in 1963 and the dawn of the “blaxploitation” movie cycle in 1970, Christopher Sieving reveals how race relations influenced black-themed cinema before it was recognized as commercially viable by the major studios. The films that are central to this book—Gone Are the Days (1963), The Cool World (1964), The Confessions of Nat Turner (never produced), Uptight (1968), and The Landlord (1970)—are all ripe for reevaluation and newfound appreciation. Soul Searching is essential reading for anyone interested in the politics and cultural movements of the 1960s, cinematic trends like blaxploitation and the American “indie film” explosion, or black experience and its many facets.

Book Summary:

In his first book, Spirited Americans, A. E. Jeffcoat celebrated America's optimists, the people who gave this country its character and greatness. He follows it with Soul Searching, an affirmation of Christian faith through the testimony of pilgrims who have born witness to its historical traditions. Today, those who turn to God to help them deal with the challenges of a world without a moral compass will derive comfort from treading the same path as Einstein, Schweitzer, and Mother Teresa. Others who have lost their faith, or never found it, can look for encouragement in the lives of latecomers such as Tolstoy and Malcolm Muggeridge, discovering, as did Simone Weil, that any step toward God is a good step. The legacy of Thomas Jefferson and the examples of such leaders as Hamilton, Lincoln, and the two Roosevelt's will challenge those who question whether faith has a place in our secular polity. Learn the power of faith and the durability of Christianity in Soul Searching.
