"In the postmodern world, spirituality has floated free from religion. As society becomes increasingly secularised, so there is a growing focus on the concept of 'spirituality', particularly in the pastoral professions of education and medicine. In contrast, theology has generally been confined to conventional academic frameworks. Thus some students on degree programmes do not explore the framework and assumptions on which much of their study is based, and the curriculum requires the moral and spiritual development of children, without acknowledging that spirituality is a theological concept. Spirituality and the Curriculum redresses this imbalance. In this volume, contributions from a distinguished selection of educationalists and theologians provide a contemporary survey of the theological issues facing the spirituality debate. The whole range of issues are confronted: spirituality and children, the politics of spirituality, spirituality and higher education, the Church and spirituality, and diverse accounts of spirituality in different faith traditions. The book is both theoretical and practical, and concludes by considering possible curriculum development in the area of spirituality."
