With The Wonder of Girls and The Wonder of Boys, bestselling author Michael Gurian presented his groundbreaking views of parenting. Now, with the same breadth of vision and depth of commitment, he combines accessible analysis of cutting-edge science with the study of spiritual texts to explore the divine side of childhood, and to put forth a practical design for the care of our children's souls.

A revolutionary vision for parents and educators alike -- indeed, for all who love children -- The Soul of the Child is a deft blend of inspiring stories, common sense, and scientific observations that demonstrates what the soul is and how it works. This insightful and groundbreaking book urges its readers to become aware of our children's divine inheritance, and learn how to nurture that divinity. Sensible and informed, it shows how to protect childhood from the complexities of our age, and provides, as no book ever has, the means for bestowing upon our children the gifts of compassion, security, discipline, humility, and enlightenment.

The Soul of the Child is a passionate and practical book that puts forth a finely wrought argument for greater attention to the spiritual side of childhood, to the very life of the human soul. And it couldn't have come at a better time.

Ann F. Caron, Ed.D. author of "Don't Stop Loving Me" Never one to accept the status quo, Gurian challenges us to explore how the science of neurobiology confirms our ancient religious traditions and invites us to consider a new definition of the soul. This daring mix of science and religion produces a beautiful understanding of the child. Gurian offers us an inspirational way to live and work with children. Rev. William Harper Houff, Ph.D. author of "Infinity in Your Hand" A tremendous work and one of the most important books of the new millennium. With its visionary outlook and good common sense, "The Soul of the Child" builds a unique bridge between science and religion. Its inspiring stories, beautiful prose, and touch of genius will change the way we look at children, and ourselves, forever. As a parent and grandparent, I was deeply touched by this book. As a minister and scientist, I was inspired to do the work of making our society a better place for children. Mimi Doe author of "10 Principles for Spiritual Parenting" Bravo to Michael Gurian for reminding us of the sacredness of our work as parents and the vivid lives of our children's souls. If you have any doubt about the reality of the soul, read this book. Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D. author of "Meditation as Medicine" An absolutely brilliant and lovely book. Practical and scientific. A must read for every parent who wants to raise a spiritual child. Rev. William Harper Houff, Ph.D.author of "Infinity in Your Hand"
