Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author seeks to answer the following questions by referring to several recently published empirical studies on the relation of youth and religion in Germany. The questions include: (1) what is the current state and development of Christian religiosity and bonding to the church among the German youth; (2) how about the development of religiosity of the youth beyond Christian religiosity; (3) what kinds of religiosity do German youth adhere to; and (4) what are the predictions for the future of religiosity among the youth. The author clarifies two issues: who does 'the youth' refer to and what kinds of explanatory patterns exist regarding the development of religiosity in society. Quantitative data is used to illustrate the youth phase of life in Germany rather than analyzing psychological explanations of religiosity in detail.

Keywords: Christian religiosity; German youth
