Exploring Faith covers the entire Religious Education Junior Certificate course in a single volume. This gives teachers the freedom to design a three-year programme that meets the specific needs of their school.
Exploring Faith has been designed to reflect the structure and content of the Junior Certificate syllabus. The material is presented in a clear, attractive and accessible manner for both teacher and student.
Exploring Faith offers a variety of relevant student exercises. Some enable students to test their knowledge and understanding of the content of each chapter. Others encourage both individual and group reflection in a creative and challenging way.
While Exploring Faith meets the requirements of the Junior Certificate syllabus, it is a textbook suitable for all students who are interested in exploring religious faith in Ireland today.
