Item Description...
Widely known theological educator and sociologist Carol Lytch presents this well-researched study of what attracts teenagers to the church and what keeps them there. The cogent research includes interviews of a number of teenagers and their parents from mainline Protestant, evangelical, and Roman Catholic congregations. Groundbreaking and fascinating, Choosing Church ultimately serves as a highly useful description of the most effective ways that congregations and parents can foster faith in early teenagers that will help them value the church as a place to obtain identity, belonging, and growth.

Publishers Description
This is a study of what attracts teenagers to the church and keeps them there. The author interviewd a number of teenagers and their parents from mainline Protestant, evangelical and Roman Catholic congregations. The book builds on the following elements: the story of how three churches are securing teens' commitment to a church-oriented sense of faith rooted in their Christian traditions; the voice of teens who are deeply commited, as well as those who opt out of the best case scenario churches; and the perceptions of parents in relation to spirituality, the church and religion. The result is a helpful description of the most effective ways that congregations and their parents can build a faith in early teens that is not anti-institutional and that helps them value the church as a place of identity, belonging and growth.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A very fine book!  Jan 26, 2004
Carol Lytch is a terrific scholar and writer, with just the right sensibilities to write a book like this. She examines strong youth groups in Catholic, mainline Protestant, and evangelical Protestant churches, and she discovers several common themes. Conventional wisdom says that young, handsome, and male leaders are the key to vital youth groups. Lytch finds that this isn't so. Others say that contemporary worship is the key. Again, Lytch shows that this isn't so. What are the reasons that kids choose church? A sense of meaning, a sense of belonging, and a feeling of competence are the reasons. Parents play a key role too. Parents of teenagers as well as pastors will find a great deal of helpful information in this book.
