The United States is undergoing a religious transformation. As the Information Age moves on, people’s ideas of religion, God and spirituality shift with increasing frequency. The question becomes; shifting towards what? In her new book Spiritual Transformation in America: What it Means to All of Us (published by AuthorHouse) author Carol B. Green examines the data regarding the spiritual trends in the U.S. in an effort to understand these trends and answer some very poignant questions.

While there have been multiple studies of religion in the U.S., until now there are some important follow-up questions that have not always been asked. Just what do people believe when they say that they believe in God? What do they believe about Heaven? How does God fit into our lives? Just as we accept that we are a nation made up of diverse peoples from different cultures, asserts Green, perhaps we should question if our basic religious and spiritual images are equally diverse. Spiritual Transformation in America searches for answers using reputable surveys, by reviewing books, essays, speeches, as well as interviews with appropriate parties. The goal of Spiritual Transformation in America is to better understand just what it is that Americans believe, and how these beliefs impact life in America.

Spiritual Transformation in America pays special attention to the perspective of America’s younger generation. It is an inescapable fact that there is always some type of shift in belief structures between generations. Today's young people are bombarded with a constant stream of information. They have images from the natural world, the scientific world, as well as the religious and spiritual worlds. The impact on their beliefs is examined. The beliefs of young adults will shape future religious observance and practices. Understanding these shifts, as well as the inevitable clash with older generational beliefs, provides the framework for understanding future religious and spiritual thought in America.

With conversation rather than rhetoric and hard data rather than posturing, Spiritual Transformation in America peels away the layers to present a rational examination of the state of spirituality in modern America as well as present possible insights on where it may be headed in the future.
