This Week's White Horse Inn

Almost Christian

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 that 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."

"A more faithful church is the solution."

I wonder if anyone stops to consider how few of these there are on this entire continent - churches that could confessionally be called "churches" according to BC 29?

The number just keeps shrinking, also.
