  • Summary:

    Soul Searching: a Movie about Teenagers and God looks at teenagers…from around the country: to get into their lives and get at the core of their beliefs. This documentary is based on the findings of the book, ‘Soul Searching : the Religious and Spiritual Lives of American Teenagers‘, by Christian Smith and Melinda Denton, which reports on research conducted over a seven year period by the National Study of Youth and Religion. The movie illustrates some of the major themes and findings of the book, but it also goes behind the book in depicting the inner lives of a sample of American teenagers.

    Find out what these teenagers really think about God and religion, what their hopes and aspirations are, and what the research says about the effects of religion in their lives.
