- Library Journal

Synopsis:

The author of the hugely popular beliefnet.com column Ask Pastor Paul takes teen readers on a hip, nonjudgmental tour of the world's major religions.

In Teen Spirit, Paul Raushenbush provides the answers to the most common questions and concerns he hears from teens (in some cases using actual letters he has received), as well as giving them a more in-depth introduction to the many different religions they encounter on their soccer teams, in the lunchroom and in their friends' homes.

Teen Spirit covers each of the major religions present in America, complete with basic tenets, testimonies from famous celebrity practitioners, teen voices on why they like practicing that religion, misperceptions, specific roles and rites of passage for young people, and etiquette for how to behave when invited to an unfamiliar religious event.

Fun graphics, interactive activities and quizzes, and a hip teen look will especially appeal to young readers.
