How much does engagement with topics of science and faith matter to teenagers? In 2015, Dr. Andy Root, Rev. David Wood, and Rev. Tony Jones investigaged this question in the context of youth ministry. They explain, “In brief, we found that teenagers are acutely aware of the ways that science implicates their faith, but youth ministers either do not fully understand this issue or feel inadequate to address it.” This white paper lays out the findings of their research, interprets them within their cultural context, and proposes a path forward that makes it possible for “science [to[ go from an afterthought in American youth ministry to a primary concern.”
