Product Description

Review

"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." -- James Youniss 20050405 "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 20061011 "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) 20071226

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent scholarly yet very readable manual July 23 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent resource featuring, among other things, a clear definition of spiritual development, an update on Fowler's Stages of Faith model that demonstrates how his theory remains relevant after 30 years, and excellent material related to conducting research in this field. I have found this to be an invaluable tool both for the preparation of the university courses I teach, as well as my own PhD research. Despite its strong scholarly value, it is very readable and enjoyable to peruse.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mostly academic, not very practical March 14 2014
By Ben Suri - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Had to get this book as required reading for a Human Development Class. The sections we had to read rarely applied to studies in the class( Not really the books fault, more the school). The book is a grab bag of different research articles, some are more interesting then other, but mostly it's pretty dull stuff. It would be a good book if you were doing research in the field of spirituality and psychology, but other than that it's a dull boring read. I rarely used it in my studies and felt it was a waste of $100.
