about

There may be no topic that is more controversial in our country and in our schools than religion. Changing demographics and the evolving relationship between religion and politics have resulted in conflicts concerning teaching about religion, teaching about evolution, and prayers at graduation. In spite of laws and policies designed to clarify these challenges, the relationship between religion and the schools remains a powerful and conflicted issue. And yet, religious literacy is essential for people of all ages to understand historical and contemporary cultures and conflicts as well as different beliefs and practices of people in our communities and around the world. Many of the concerns raised about teaching children about religion can be addressed through the use of authentic children's and adolescent literature. The use of rich narratives, both fact and fiction, is both an effective and inclusive strategy for teaching about religious and spiritual diversity. This book is an invaluable resource for enabling teachers, religious educators, and families to learn about religious diversity themselves and to teach children about both their own religion as well as the beliefs of others.
