The Christian Life Survey helps people see the spiritual centers, lifestyles, and Bible engagement approaches that define their spirituality. Administrations to tens of thousands of students at 46 different Christian colleges in the United States have allowed us to see the trends in the students’ spirituality and to track those trends across time. The trends have been consistent across the decade the Christian Life Survey has been used. To exemplify those trends, results from 2012 and 2014 are provided below.
