Collegians and Millennials are abandoning organized religion at a dizzying pace. Nearly four in 10 (39%) young adults (ages 18-29) claim no religious identity. Six in 10 say they stopped believing in the teachings of their childhood religion, according to a 2016 study by the Public Religion Research Institute.
Now, publishers are responding to this culture shift with books by believers, scholars and young adults themselves on Millennials and faith – or the lack of it. Several recent and upcoming books address whether or not Millennials care about religion, how they live out their faith and how faith leaders can reach them.
