Mapping the Big Picture
This chapter presents data from the National Survey of Youth and Religion. Among the survey’s findings are that three quarters of U.S. teens between 13 and 17 years old are Christians. About one-half are Protestant, and one-quarter are Catholic. Teenagers who are pagan or Wiccan represent less than one-third of 1 percent of U.S. teens. The Protestant denominations of the congregations teens attend, religious self-identities of the parents of teens, belief similarity of religions adolescents, religious tradition, religious service attendance, characteristics of religious faith, religious and spiritual beliefs and experiences, personal religious practices, religious groups activities, and teens’ evaluations of religious congregations are discussed.
