GenXers are assumed to be a thoroughly secular and apathetic group, but actually attend church in roughly the same numbers as Baby Boomers. This book is the first to examine the myriad ways in which GenXers reinvent religion.
GenX Religion is the first in-depth collection on this generation's religious experience. The contributors, mostly GenXers themselves, offer both a disciplined methodology and a valuable insider's sensitivity as they examine the differences between GenX religion and "traditional" religious avenues.
