LFP Book Award: Past Winners and Finalists

2011 Winner:


Souls in Transition: The Religious Lives of Emerging Adults

An exemplary work of scholarship combining empirical data with personal stories, Souls in Transition:  The Religious and Spiritual Lives of Emerging Adults cuts through the media clutter on college-age adults to offer a vital portrait of their religious, moral, and spiritual assumptions and practices.  The implications in this work for the way colleges and universities--religiously-affiliated or not--recruit, retain, instruct, and prepare students for lives that matter are challenging and profound.  Souls in Transition should be required reading for anyone working in higher education.
