Description - Education, Religion and Society by Dennis Bates
"Religion, Education and Society" celebrates the career of Professor John Hull the internationally renowned religious educationist who has also achieved worldwide fame for his brilliant writings on his experience, mid-career, of total blindness. In his outstanding career John Hull has been a leading figure in the transformation of religious education in English and Welsh state schools, and was the 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 honour John Hull's contribution, with a focus on furthering scholarship in the areas where he has been active as a thinker. This volume offers a critical appreciation of his contribution to religious education and practical theology, and goes on to explore the continuing debate about the role of religious education in promoting international understanding, intercultural education and human rights education.
The contributors also deal with issues relating to indoctrination, racism and relationship in Christian religious aspects, and examines 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 the work of one of the great creative influences on religious education.
