ABSTRACT
The article discusses the insight of 19th century Oxford scholar John Henry Newman into the predicament of youth in the 21st century. Topics covered include the University of Notre Dame's National Survey of Youth and Religion project which examines the trends that define the modern religious landscape and revives Newman's thought and Newman's view that the anti-dogmatic foundation of religious liberalism undermined the means which God has chosen to redeem the fallen human condition.
