Originally published in 1992, the purpose of this book is to provide a means by which teachers of religious education can develop mutual understanding and respect for both for, and between, those of different religions as well as those without religious belief.
The book has two main strengths, firstly it is based on discussion with people from different faith communities. This gives the reader an insight into how religion actually works out in practice. Secondly, the teacher is given practical advice for dealing with different issues as they may arise in the classroom.
