Description

How does attitude towards Christianity change during the years of childhood and adolescence? Is it true that attitude toward Christianity becomes less favourable as children grow up and, if so, are there any particular stages associated with this trend? What are the causes or precursors of changing attitude toward Christianity? How important is parental example? How important is the influence of school? How important is the young person's personality? Does religion make any difference to the lives of young people? Are religious young people more or less happy than those who reject religion? Do religious young people espouse different moral values, or hold a different outlook on life? Using data compiled over 25 years of research, this book seeks to provide answers to such questions and outline areas for further study.
