"In this heartfelt outing, [Rainn Wilson] offers a broad array of spiritual ideas for finding hope in a cynical world....Animated by self-aware humor, this entry doesn't pretend to have all the answers, and instead offers deceptively simple yet thought-provoking musings to help readers embark on a quest of spiritual self-awareness. This is a pleasure to read."--Publishers Weekly (starred)
"[Soul Boom] considers our most difficult challenges and outlines nothing short of a spiritual revolution as a path to healing them....Along the way, Wilson covers numerous heady concepts, including the purpose of life (soul growth), life after death, and God....[The] book remains true to the author's thesis--that the world needs spiritual solutions to many of its ailments--and Wilson walks a razor-sharp line in addressing the most sacred of topics with the airy irreverence one might expect from the former sitcom star. With sincere enthusiasm and a playful tone, Wilson highlights the vitality of spirituality in our lives."--Kirkus Reviews
"Brilliant, humorous, and deeply wise, Rainn Wilson makes the case for spiritual revolution like no other. With humility that lands in the heart, Rainn invites us into a profound conversation on death and despair, God and transcendence, and love as a revolutionary force. The result: an electrifying manifesto on how to transform the world from the inside out. Let Soul Boom ignite and inspire you, as it has me!"--Valarie Kaur, activist and author of See No Stranger
"Wilson examines the world's religious writings and practices, challenging readers to identify the sacred in their lives, and concludes that the communal aspect of our faith has declined, exacerbating narcissism and disunity. He even advocates for the creation of a new religion...combining the best elements of major world faiths and encourages his audience to cultivate these virtues to spark spiritual revolution. Wilson's wry wit and humorous comments punctuate snippets of wisdom from an array of clerics. This is entertaining and thought-provoking."--Booklist
"A gracious and compassionate (and altogether engaging) book, by someone who truly believes that it is possible to love God, neighbor, and world, and to relate to them and cherish them in ways at once richly spiritual and impeccably rational. He's right, of course: it is."--David Bentley Hart, author of The Experience of God: Being, Consciousness, Bliss
"Serving up a delicious smorgasbord of existential philosophy, self-reflection, social science, and Star Trek, Rainn Wilson explores the missing role of spirituality in the modern world. It will light up your brain, warm your heart, and tickle your funny bone."--Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and host of the TED podcast Re: Thinking
"This is the insightful exploration of spirituality that we desperately need right now. As we all seek answers amidst an unceasing news cycle of chaos and doom, Rainn Wilson's Soul Boom funnily but gently and lovingly opens a door to a deeper way to process all that is happening around us. The wisdom in and on these pages will fill your soul and touch your heart."--Lisa Ling, coauthor of Somewhere Inside and host of This Is Life
