Editorial Reviews


"These rich and subtle papers demonstrate that generation X is neither Western civilization's deliverance nor its nemesis."
-Alan Aldridge, "American Journal of Sociology
..."provides a typology that helps readers understand GenXers and their religious needs.."
-"Religious Studies Review, October 2001, volume 27 number 4
"Each chapter is unique, interesting reading and includes specific references for that particular case study (from Christian Tattoo parlors to a Friday Night Live Shabbat service).."
-"Religious Studies Review, October 2001, volume 27 number 4
""GenX Religion is a fascinating foray into the spiritual expression of a varied group of youthful seekers... The book's editors... offer illuminating chapters that attempt to define Gen-Xers and posit a theory of their religion... the book is an engrossing look at the colorful way in which Gen-Xers are making an unconventional mark on the American religious landscape."
-Teresa Watanabe, "Los Angeles Times
"GenX Religion looks deep into the gap between traditional by-the-book churches and solitary postmodern spirituality to find a thriving world of youthful religious gatherings-a Christian tattoo parlor, a Baptist nightspot, a Latino drama troupe, a Korean students' Bible study, Sunday services for hip African Americans, shabbat and schmoozing for Jewish singles, committed fellowships and casual associations-with hardly anyone over thirty! This is a fascinating book."
-R. Stephen Warner, University of Illinois at Chicago

By Karen M. Ward on May 8, 2002
Format: Paperback
this book rocks.
i've read alot of books about gen x and religion. this is among the best. i'd place it beside strauss and howe's "13th generation" as a seminal gen x work.
unlike many books by postmodern guru types, that offer anecdotal (and often inaccurate) quips about gen x, this book was written by serious scholars of religion and sociology. they actually went to real, authenitc gen x started and gen x led religious communities and studied them, in a more than superficial way... and documented how they actually lived out their faith and service to god, as postmodern believers.
the conclusions drawn at the end of the book are dead on and very helpful. if you really want to learn about authentic gen x religion, as it is actually being practiced by xers, read this book.
