Coming of Age: Exploring the Spirituality and Identity of Younger Men
by David W. Anderson; Paul G. Hill; Dr. Roland D. Martinson
What is the state of faith today among younger men in the church? How is the church responding to the spiritual needs of a new generation? Armed with these questions and many more, authors Roland Martinson, Paul Hill, and David Anderson conducted interviews with young men (ages 18-40) of differing life and faith experiences, and differing ethnic backgrounds in six regions of the U.S. This new book, Coming of Age, is based on the results of this study.
