Great book! So that's what moral therapeutic deism is. Well written. Writer can mention theological concepts ideas in an easy conversational tone. Written with passion and conviction and a bit of humor.

Lots of Catholic concepts...though I think writer is Methodist. ( a teens journal entry is shown as an example of reflection, in the spirit if the Ignation general examen).

I recommend it to anyone working with youth ministry, catechists, examples of testimony, examples of good writing regarding faith concepts, and if you are like me and just like knowing how people come to learn and mature.

It definitely made me compare myself to these teenagers and reflect on how I got here to what I believe.
