Freedom and Authority in Religions and Religious Education Hardback
Edited by Brian (University of Cumbria, UK) Gates
Part of the Religious Studies: Bloomsbury Academic Collections series
This fascinating collection of essays examines religious experience and tradition.
The first part focuses on the nature and sources of authority in each of six major religions and considers how freedom is perceived by them.
It goes on to examine the religious contexts of two examples of nations divided within themselves: Northern Ireland and Israel.
The second part of the book looks at the process of education, the tensions between freedom and authority and their implications for religious education.
