Widely known theological educator and sociologist Carol Lytch presents this well-researched study of what attracts teenagers to the church and what keeps them there. The cogent research includes interviews of a number of teenagers and their parents from mainline Protestant, evangelical, and Roman Catholic congregations. Groundbreaking and fascinating, Choosing Church ultimately serves as a highly useful description of the most effective ways that congregations and parents can foster faith in teenagers that will help them value the church as a place to obtain identity, belonging, and growth.

Carol E. Lytch is Assistant Executive Director of the Association of Theological Schools in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She coordinated the Lilly Endowment programs for Strengthening Congregational Leadership through the Fund for Theological Education from 1999 to 2006 and has served as adjunct faculty at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. She is an ordained minister in The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
