At a time of national uncertainty for RE, questions about faith-based schools and the place of religious belief in the public arena, this volume is a resource for school and university teachers, head teachers, chaplains, governors, diocesan officers, concerned parents educationalists.

It offers:

* a frank discussion about the tensions in bringing faith into the open in current educational contexts.

* theological reflection of Christian engagement in the public place

It also considers the tensions inherent in practising Christian faith within a secular context and in multi-faith contexts. It aims to generate new confidence that will encourage the practice and contribution of faith-based thinking in schools.
