Souls in Transition

Oxford University Press

This chapter places the religious and spiritual lives of contemporary emerging adults in the historical context of the last quarter century and compares them, in the area of religion, to older adults in more recent years. How different are emerging adults, as regards religion, from older adults today? How different are they from their age counterparts in previous decades? And how might those differences vary by religious tradition? These are the questions of life course and historical context that this brief chapter addresses.

Keywords:   historical context, emerging adults, religiousness, life course, age differences
