Back in the 1950s, America's churches were full and growing. The national motto was 'In God We Trust.' Since that time, the landscape has changed dramatically---and Gallup and Lindsay help you trace exactly what's happened! Packed with surveys, trends, and analysis, this resource will prove invaluable to pastors, church leaders, and anybody concerned about America's waning faith. These surveys will appeal to those who track religion professionally, but they will also be of interest to clergy, church members, and others interested in the spiritual landscape of today. A wide variety of beliefs and practices are surveyed including: belief in God, attendance at church or synagogue, religious beliefs of today's teenagers, views about the interaction between politics and religion, life after death, questions of ethics, and others. Surveys address the differences in beliefs among those of various faith perspectives, races, age groups, genders, and those in varying geographic locations.
