In A Faith of Their Own teens rate the personal significance of religion highly; less so the institutional part.

Newspapers are a bit thinner than they used to be, but a simple Google search shows that there’s no shortage of religion news online. However, choosing credible websites is a new challenge.

Nevell Owens remembers when he first felt called to pursue a doctorate in theology. He was working as a criminal prosecutor when he looked into the eyes of a 13-year-old boy accused of murder. He saw that they were empty, and he wanted to know: Where was God in the life of this boy?

“I knew the boy’s mother was active in church,” Owens says. “I wanted to know, why isn’t the minister here? Why aren’t members of the church here?”

While more evangelical students enter seminary with only parachurch experience, some leave with denominational credentials.
