This volume provides a key text for debates on spiritual education in the 21st . It presents spiritual education as a distinctive field of academic enquiry in its own right.The strengths of the book lie in its international appeal, research based orientation, and interdisciplinary character, and is divided into three main sections: religious and theological approaches; psychological and anthropological approaches; and pedagogical approaches. Issues of cultural, religious, gender and social difference are addressed in research and pedagogical terms, and the ways in which faith traditions and secular stancescontribute to values and understanding of human purpose are explored.
