ABOUT THE BOOK
Religion and Education: The Voices of Young People in Ireland is a wide-ranging collection of essays exploring the attitudes of teenagers on the island of Ireland to religion and diversity.
In this volume the authors provide a comparative analysis of what young people in Ireland have to say about religion over a period of fifty years. The results offer a fascinating insight into the religiosity and spirituality of young people in the Republic of Ireland and in Northern Ireland, and into their engagement with religious education.
By presenting and analysing this material, the authors aim to help young people, parents, schools and faith communities to reflect on how the interaction between religion and education can contribute to the fullest development of young people in Ireland today, both spiritually and morally.
