Preview

Those who consider themselves “spiritual, but not religious” have become a recognized part of the American religious landscape. Constituting a full 20% of the population, their unchurched approach to religion will likely continue to be the only viable option for a growing sector of the American population. Importantly, the interests and vocabularies of our unchurched seekers have even begun to influence the inner‐spirituality of many who still belong to America's established churches. A major conclusion of this book is that our unchurched seekers embrace a set of beliefs that is at least as mature and dynamic as their churched counterparts.
