I introduced Flory and Miller’s book, Finding Faith: The Spiritual Quest of the Post-Boomer Generation, earlier this week. As sociologists, Flory and Miller have no axe to grind, thus I find their taxonomy of the emerging movement inherently more honest than mine or Kimball’s, Dricoll’s, McKnight’s, Pagitt’s, McLaren’s, or Stetzer’s.
And, honestly, they’re not really categorizing the movement, per se. They are looking at the ways that the post-Baby Boomer generations have religiously responded to the globalization/pluralism/postmodernism of the early 21st century. And one of the things they make clear beginning with their first book is that post-Boomer spirituality is significantly different than Boomer spirituality.
