The Handbook of Spiritual Development in Childhood and Adolescence breaks new ground by articulating the state of knowledge in the area of childhood and adolescent spiritual development. Featuring a rich array of theory and research from an international assortment of leading social scientists in multiple disciplines, this book represents work from diverse traditions and approaches -- making it an invaluable resource for scholars across a variety of disciplines and organizations.
"The editors recognize that spirituality, long neglected by psychologists, has recently come back into fashion. Because of the long exile, many psychologists are illiterate about religious scholarship. These editors know the field and are qualified to serve as guides to assist their psychologist colleagues in gaining an introduction and immersion. . ..Timely and worthwhile."

"Research into spiritual development during childhood and adolescence has remained fragmented and yearned for the stimulus of integration, cross-fertilisation, and internationalisation, across conceptual boundaries, methodological divisions, religious traditions, and local interests. The Handbook of Spiritual Development in Childhood and Adolescence sets out to meet this need and does so with skill and with authority, by identifying the key themes and by drawing on the best minds to address those themes. Research communities and faith communities have been well served by this pioneering initiative."
(The Revd Professor Leslie J Francis PhD, ScD, DD)
"The Handbook of Spiritual Development in Childhood and Adolescence makes a significant contribution to the breadth of interpretation of the multiple realities related to something we identify as spirituality. The strength of this volume is that it does not settle for one description or one definition of spirituality. Instead, it offers insight into the struggle to define spirituality through the multiple perspectives of the social sciences. The edited volume contributes meaningfully to the work of others who also study the content and context of our spiritual development." (Joretta L. Marshall 2006-10-11)
"With sixty-seven scholars from four continents and many diverse disciplines contributing as authors to the volume; with fourteen scholars from around the world serving as editorial advisors; with financial support provided by the John Templeton Foundation via Search Institute; with frequent conversations occurring with colleagues at Fuller Theological Seminary; and with the careful attention of editorial work provided by Sage publications, this handbook provides a remarkable contribution toward those ends." ―JOURNAL OF YOUTH AND THEOLOGY (Chris Kiesling Journal of Youth and Theology (2007) 2007-12-26)
