Item Description...
A guide to helping Gen-Xers reconnect with spirituality and faith in their lives today. Describes the lifelong process of discovering both God and self and explains that for the typical young adult, loss of faith is a necessary part of maturing spirituality.

Publishers Description
In this lively, challenging book, Brett Hoover says that the typical young-adult loss of faith is a necessary part of maturing spirituality: faith can grow only when religion is doubted, lost, and found again in a new light. Using the metaphor of a road trip, Hoover describes the lifelong process of discovering both God and self. "Losing your religion" is just one necessary obstacle on the road to a holistic spirituality.

An Interesting Look at Young Adult Catholic Spirituality  Nov 9, 2003
LOSING YOUR RELIGION/FINDING YOUR FAITH, a book by Paulist priest Brett Hoover, presents relevant information regarding young adult spirituality. Hoover is qualified to write this work for two reasons. First, he has worked with young adults as a college campus minister. Second, he is also young himself and has personally navigated the "spiritual roadmap" he speaks of in his book . Hoover's basic premise is that young people are often raised in a religious tradition, but abandon it at college age. He does not see this as a reason for discouragement since many people rediscover their religion in a new and vital way. The book discusses many of the ways young people lives their faith in ways which are both familiar and different. Hoover has much to offer for people looking for ways to strengthen their faith and offers many suggestions for people hoping to deepen their faith. In many ways the book presents similar themes found in Scottie McLennan's FINDING YOUR RELIGION but the emphasis of the Hoover book is more specific to the Catholic faith. People who are looking to strengthen their faith as well as people in ministry will find this book helpful .
Simple and To the Point  Jun 23, 2000
Hoover's book is a good guide to any young adult graduating from high school and entering college or a vocation. He explains that many young adults do not lose their faith--they just find a new way to understand it. As they question their traditions, experiences, and religious convictions they see different aspects (probably because they are on their own).

Hoover describes the spiritual journey as a "Road Trip". Many people commute to work. Commuters are only concerned with getting to their destination. They dread the trip, ignore the sights, and think only of the end. Hoover points out that many people live their spiritual lives as commuters on the way to heaven. "Road Trips" involve rest stops, visiting, sight seeing, discussions, laughter, and growth. This, according to Hoover, is what the spiritual journey should be. Our growth should be enjoyable and have an awareness of the journey to heaven. Throughout the book this metaphor encourages discipline, an appreciation for tradition and discussion, and a seeking for spiritual growth and formation.

This book is a great book for any graduate.
