"Research into spiritual development during childhood and adolescence has . . . yearned for the stimulus of integration, cross-fertilization, and internationalization, 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, University of Wales, Bangor, UK
