Here are links to book reviews, when available online, and interviews:
Religion & Education has reviewed Faith Ed. and given it a nod in a foreword, too. Many thanks to the journal editor Mike Waggoner and reviewer Nicholas Piediscalzi. Here’s a snippet from the review, which also included Dr. Piediscalzi’s wonderful insight about the history of efforts to teach about religion in America:
“Faith Ed. is … a helpful resource for scholars, teachers, school administrators, and political leaders. It provides valuable concrete information about current problems, attitudes, undercurrents, and conflicts in our society that need to be addressed by those who seek to teach about religions in the schools and those who set policy for such teaching.”
Church and State review, the magazine for Americans United for Separation and Church and State. Review by Sarah Jones.
Review by the On Being Both blog author, Susan Katz Miller.
“Talking with those involved in the controversies (teachers, parents, administrators, activists) as well as students in the classes under fire, she found no monsters of intolerance but instead dedicated and careful educators, short-fused yet not unreasonable opponents of teaching about religion, and plenty of kids glad to have been taught.” — Ray Olson, Booklist
Faith Ed also has been reviewed by many other outlets, including The Jewish Advocate, Library Journal and Booklist, some of which do not provide free online access. To see other blurbs from various reviews, go to the Beacon Press page for the book.
