Although teaching RE is a legal requirement in UK schools, it is an oft-neglected and misunderstood subject. It is important to seriously re-think this key subject at this time of low religious literacy and rising extremism. This book promotes a public discussion of what exactly is needed from a new model of RE and covers pressing issues such as radicalisation, educational reform and the weakening of moderate religious institutions. The editors create a flowing, diverse and coherent discussion about the state of RE and offer choices and routes for readers to consider in terms of its future course.
