Amer­i­cans — espe­cial­ly young peo­ple — are less affil­i­at­ed with orga­nized reli­gion than at any oth­er time in our his­to­ry. I Don’t Know What to Believe address­es that decline and presents an insight­ful exam­i­na­tion of authen­tic spir­i­tu­al­i­ty for those who desire answers, guid­ance, and per­spec­tive regard­ing an impor­tant aspect of their lives: their beliefs, and rela­tion­ship to, a high­er pow­er.

Why does my par­ents’ reli­gion have to define me? Am I God’s child even if I don’t go to reli­gious ser­vices? Does scrip­ture include me in its ide­ol­o­gy regard­less of how much scrip­ture I know? How do I fol­low my own spir­i­tu­al­i­ty while still respect­ing my par­ents’ tra­di­tions? Rab­bi Ben Kamin address­es ques­tions he has received from real peo­ple over the thir­ty years of his ministry.
