Emerging Scholarship on Youth and Religion: Resources for a New Generation of Youth Ministry

In the mid-20th century as the idea solidified of adolescence as a separate life stage with its own unique characteristics and needs, scholars and church leaders began to utilize studies from psychology, sociology or education to better understand and work with youth. This emerging body of research makes theology, spirituality and faith formation central to such inquiries about youth. Joyce Ann Mercer considers this material particularly where it has significant implications for the practice of youth ministry. This is the third of four articles on research on Youth and Religion funded by the Religion division of the Lilly Endowment.
