Reviews

"Though the book does not explicitly deal with the teaching of religion per se, instructors of Religious Studies or Theology will find the book an excellent jumping off point for discussions on the meaning of "education" and the purpose of "curriculum" in either discipline."--Michael Nichols, Teaching Theology & Religion (2009)
