"Adults squirm when the big questions come up, especially the big spiritual ones. They don't want their kids to worry, so they give answers that all say one thing: 'Don't worry. It's all okay.'
"And yet the big questions still keep coming up. At every age we all need to know what life is really all about. Not just on the surface, but deep down.
"Teenagers are no exception. They deserve a spiritual life all their own. One that offers the kind of comfort we hope to give our children, but is different at the same time. More full of ideas. More mature. More fitting for the whole wide future that lies ahead.
"That's what I've tried to do in this book, as fully and as honestly as possible."
