Dr. Christian Smith has written a new book titled Handing Down the Faith: How Parents Pass Their Religion on to the Next Generation. It’s based on new research about how parents successfully raise children to become religiously-practicing adults.
In this episode, Bishop Barron and Brandon Vogt walk through his findings and discuss what actually helps our kids to retain their faith into young adulthood.
A listener asks, how do we know which religion is right, Catholicism or Protestantism?
