This book draws upon empirical data collected from 10,000 adolescent young
people in
10 European countries. The first volume of this project was about young
people’s lifeperspectives
and the second about their religious attitudes and practices. The current
and final
volume of this cross-cultural study connects both research dimensions. The
analyses make
clear that the influence of religion on values, life-orientation and
politics differs strongly
between different groups within Christianity and between Christians, Jews
and Muslims.
Many findings contain obvious surprises because they refute mainstream
opinion on many
topics. This book gives detailed and new insights in the public relevance
of the religiosity of
young people across Europe. All three volumes together are indispensable
for scholars who
work in public, religious and educational contexts.
