Education, Religion and Society celebrates the career of Professor John Hull, a leading figure in the transformation of religious education in English and Welsh schools, and co-founder of the International Seminar on Religious Education and Values. He has also made major contributions to the theology of disability and the theological critique of the 'money culture'. Leading international scholars join together to offer a critical appreciation of his contribution to religious education and practical theology, and explore the continuing debate about the role of religious education in promoting international understanding, intercultural education and human rights. The contributors also deal with indoctrination, racism and relationship in Christian religious issues, and examine aspects of the theology of social exclusion and disability. This unique book includes a complete list of John Hull's writings up to the beginning of 2005 providing both an excellent introduction to contemporary issues of religious education in the West, and the most complete critical account yet of his work.

This volume presents findings from recent research focusing on young people and the way they relate to religion in their education and upbringing. The essays are diverse and multidisciplinary - in terms of the religions they discuss (including Christianity, Islam and Sikhism); the settings where young people reflect on religion (the classroom, youth club, peer group, families, respective religious communities and wider society); the different perspectives which relate to religious education and socialisation (the teaching of RE, the role of teachers in pupils’ lives, the way teachers’ personal lives shape their approach to teaching, school ethos and social context, and the place and rationale of RE); the contexts within which the authors work (different national settings and various academic disciplines); and the methodology used (qualitative, quantitative and mixed-method approaches). The authors make important contributions to the debate about the role of religious education in the curriculum. They demonstrate the crucially important formative influence of religious education in young people’s lives which reaches well into their adulthood, shaping religious and other identities, and attitudes towards the ‘other’ - whatever that ‘other’ may be. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Beliefs & Values.

Reflecting a national movement that seeks to create a more holistic model of learning and teaching on college and university campuses, Education as Transformation is a collection of twenty-eight essays written by a wide range of educators--including presidents, chancellors, deans, faculty members, administrators, religious life professionals, students, and other leaders in the field of education--on the themes of religious pluralism and spirituality in higher education. These essays provide scholarly analysis, practical information, and inspiration for those who agree that higher education can combine both head and heart in the teaching and learning process and in campus and community life. In seeking to articulate a new vision for higher education in America, the authors explore the possibility that both scholarship and spirituality are essential to fostering global learning communities and responsible global citizens who can address the challenges of a diverse world. « With the increased dominance of specialized knowledge and technical process, all in higher education--students, faculty, and administrators alike--are searching for new sources of meaning and coherence in their lives. 'Education as Transformation' is a landmark response to this pressing need. The authors in this volume are the key leaders of what has become a major movement aimed at cultivating substantive engagement and a vigorous dialogue on these critical issues. This book should be read widely throughout higher education. (R. Eugene Rice, Scholar in Residence and Director of the Forum on Faculty Roles and Rewards of the American Association for Higher Education) « This valuable collection draws fresh anduseful insights on the current state of American university culture from the worlds of religion and spirituality. The voices encountered here, both new and established, will surprise the academy with their humanity and utility. The reflections about campus community bui

It is in four parts: theoretical and conceptual basis for religious diversity and intercultural education; educational conditions and methodological approaches; religious diversity in schools in different settings; examples of current practice in some member states of the Council of Europe.

The educational system in each country reflects the values and talents that are considered important in that particular culture. Most of the cultures build their educational system on a concept of an intelligence, which is defined in Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences as the ability to solve problems, or to create products, that are valued within one or more cultural settings. Researchers and educators are challenged to identify the values and foundations underlying their practice. This book brings together recent work by leading international researchers in the fields of education, philosophy and psychology. It consists of thirteen chosen articles from the 10th Conference of the European Council for High Ability. The book is divided into four parts. While the first part deals with the values, virtues and gifts, the second part contains empirical studies on giftedness in the life-span. The third part is about science and high ability students. The fourth part discusses holistic education for high ability students.

Winner of the Frank S. and Elizabeth D. Brewer Best First Book Prize of the American Society of Church History Named a Society for U. S. Intellectual History Notable Title in American Intellectual History The story of liberal religion in the twentieth century, Matthew S. Hedstrom contends, is a story of cultural ascendency. This may come as a surprise-most scholarship in American religious history, after all, equates the numerical decline of the Protestant mainline with the failure of religious liberalism. Yet a look beyond the pews, into the wider culture, reveals a more complex and fascinating story, one Hedstrom tells in The Rise of Liberal Religion. Hedstrom attends especially to the critically important yet little-studied arena of religious book culture-particularly the religious middlebrow of mid-century-as the site where religious liberalism was most effectively popularized. By looking at book weeks, book clubs, public libraries, new publishing enterprises, key authors and bestsellers, wartime reading programs, and fan mail, among other sources, Hedstrom is able to provide a rich, on-the-ground account of the men, women, and organizations that drove religious liberalism's cultural rise in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. Critically, by the post-WWII period the religious middlebrow had expanded beyond its Protestant roots, using mystical and psychological spirituality as a platform for interreligious exchange. This compelling history of religion and book culture not only shows how reading and book buying were critical twentieth-century religious practices, but also provides a model for thinking about the relationship of religion to consumer culture more broadly. In this way, The Rise of Liberal Religion offers both innovative cultural history and new ways of seeing the imprint of liberal religion in our own times.
