Families and Faith: How Religion is Passed Down Across Generations is written by Vern Bengston, scholar of religion at the University of Southern California. The book examines continuity (or discontinuity) in "transmissions" of religious traditions and values from generation to generation within various American faith communities. What makes this book truly unique is that Vern Bengston and his colleagues followed the lives of about 350 extended families (3,500 individuals) for the period of nearly 40 years. This is largest ever study of religion and family across generations and many findings are quite surprising and challenge commonly accepted stereotypes.
The book is available on Amazon both as hardcopy and electronic book..
