3.0 out of 5 stars Middle of the Road, 17 Feb 2014
This review is from: Trauma and the Soul: A psycho-spiritual approach to human development and its interruption (Paperback)
Through the years I've read a lot of 'soul' books. This one is middle of the road. I cannot go higher on this one as the author confuses the `soul' as being synonymous with the `spirit' whereas nothing could be further from the truth.

I found one book The Reincarnation of Albino Luciani: In Search of the Human Soul which defines the four dimensions of a human being: body - mind - spirit - soul as being four entirely different things.

Albino Luciani was Pope John Paul I who was murdered in the Vatican in 1978 after only 33 days on the job because of his liberal left wing idealsThe Vatican Murders: The Life and Death of John Paul I. As a young seminarian he would often ask his teachers: "What is the human soul?" He always got the same answer: "It is just something we don't understand."

As a result he concentrated his doctoral thesis `The Origin of the Human Soul' on defining specifically what one is speaking of when one utters the phrase "the human soul." Like most people I used to confuse the spirit with the soul as being synonymous. Now I know the difference between the two - one has absolutely nothing to do with the other.

As for `Trauma and the Soul'? Why read a book about the soul that doesn't tell you what it is dealing with?

This review would have been more helpful if it had contained an explanation of what the review's writer considers the soul (and spirit) to be.

I went to The Reincarnation of Albino Luciani: In Search of the Human Soul and clicked on 'Look Inside' It pretty much defines the difference between the spirit and the soul. You don't have to buy the book.
