Abstract: This paper introduces the purpose of education in an innovated form, it explains that education should focus on twofold purpose, and to develop that purpose a textbook named 'Eternobee' has been proposed initiatively in this study. But to understand what the twofold purpose means, the paper first outlines the meaning of spirituality and the importance of spiritual development in students. Then it moves to explain the purpose of education as a purpose with two folds; one fold is the personal spiritual and intellectual development, and the other fold is the social transforming, which both folds should be developed parallel if we aim to bring change and build a better world or as it has been called in this paper the 'new world civilization'. To show the importance of working on the two folds, the paper briefly reviews the approaches of two places – England and Dubai - that has been taken positive movements towards personal and social development of students at schools. In addition, a curriculum analysis has been applied in this paper, comparing the contents of Eternobee with the objectives of 'the schools' inspection handbook' of Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau (DSIB) for the academic year 2011-2012, and with 'the evaluation schedule for the inspection of maintained schools and academies' of Office for Standards in Education, Student's Services and Skills (Ofsted) for January 2012, to assess the three components in terms of personal and social development, and to evaluate how Eternobee has the potential to enhance the twofold purpose of education in students.
