New research on 20-somethings gets past the hype and offers a reason to hope, reports Colin Hansen in an article in Leadership journal.net.  The National Study of Youth and Religion has examined many aspects of the developing lives of emerging adults including (amoung other topics) their religious beliefs, practices, and salience. 

"The National Study of Youth and Religion provides us with a treasure trove of valuable information based on interviews with thousands of emerging American adults."

This research has been evaluated and is available in the 2005 book: Soul Searching: The Religious and Spiritual Lives of American Teenagers by Christian Smith with Melinda Lundquist Denton.
