The concluding chapter summarizes the book’s findings on the religious, spiritual, and secular lives of American twentysomethings. It compares the findings from the National Study of American Twentysomethings with research on adolescent religiosity and analyses the role of spirituality in the lives of Christian and religiously unaffiliated Twentysomethings. Chapter 7 also includes multivariate analyses of the strength of association between religion, spirituality, and eight life statuses. Lastly, this chapter discusses the importance of the 20s to understanding the life course as well as thinking about what the future holds for America’s Christian traditions and the growing number of adults with no religious affiliation.
