Experienced practitioners, theologians and academics reflect on the Christian voice as it engages in education today.

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
* a creative exploration of the future for Christian engagement in education.

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.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby has lent his support to this publication which has been greatly appreciated by the authors.
