Dudley, Roger L.
Adolescence, v28 n109 p21-28 Spr 1993
Examined late adolescents who drop out of church and others who remain committed to it. Survey of Seventh-day Adventist youth found commitment related to cognitive, experiential, and activity dimensions of religion. Ethical considerations, perception of one's importance to local congregation, and peer influence also played part in stepwise regression package, which accounted for one-half of variance in commitment.
