Inside Out 11: Almost Christian

10.25.10 | Kurt Goff

Are more and more “Christian” teens embracing a watered-down faith?

The short answer from Kenda Creasy Dean is yes.

Kenda is a professor at Princeton Theological Seminary and she’s been in the news quite a bit recently.

It’s tied into her analysis of the controversial National Study of Youth & Religion.

Here’s a quote from a CNN story that featured her book Almost Christian:

“If you’re the parent of a Christian teenager, Kenda Creasy Dean has this warning: Your child is following a “mutant” form of Christianity, and you may be responsible.”


I mean, WOW.

As a Christian parent I wanted some specifics.

I checked out the book.

But I still had my own questions.

I headed down to the studio.

Picked up the phone.

Two rings.

“Hi Kenda... Kurt Goff from Family Life here... do you have a few minutes?”


“Now let’s see… where do I begin...?”
