[Wuthnow] provides a unique window into the religious psyche of ordinary Americans. --Zachary Karabell, Los Angeles Times

Memories of religious experiences remain in our minds like few others. In Growing Up Religious, Robert Wuthnow-"the most informed and insightful commentator on American religion today" (Harvey Cox)-follows the lives of ordinary people to see how their childhood experiences inform both their adult sense of spirituality and their relation to issues of faith and tradition.

About the Author:

Robert Wuthnow is Gerhard R. Andlinger Professor of Social Sciences and director of the Center for the Study of American Religion at Princeton University. He is author of over ten books, including, most recently, After Heaven: Spirituality in America since the 1950s.

From Publishers Weekly:

Princeton professor Wuthnow's latest study of American religion is an account of interviews with 200 respondents conducted over a three-year period. Subjects were chosen by a system of quotas rather than randomly because, Wuthnow notes, he "wanted to obtain information from a diverse group of people who had undergone relevant religious experiences while they were growing up." His interviews sample the American experience of "growing up religious" in a period of five decades cut from the middle of the 20th century, with particular emphasis on the 1950s. Wuthnow focuses in the final two chapters on the relationship between global and local experience and multiculturalism. The author breaks no new theoretical ground here, but readers will be interested in the interviewees' stories. Moving from family rituals to experiences of public worship, he emphasizes a spirituality that is at home between a homogeneous past and an anticipated diverse future. Wuthnow provides substantial documentation of religion's contribution to the American genius for living comfortably in contradictory worlds while constructing a consistently integrated culture.
