Today’s Issues and Christian Beliefs

For GCSE Religious Studies

by Simon and Christopher Danes


A4 Paperback
Price: £14.75
Publisher:St Mark's Press
This textbook was originally published by Lion but has been completely revised in this edition to meet the requirements of the new 2009 GCSE specifications. Simon and Christopher Danes each has a wealth of relevant experience through teaching RE in both Church and non-denominational schools and this has given them considerable insight into best practice in modern education. The textbook contains first hand accounts of relevant experiences from people who have been actively involved in the issues covered; the layout of the pages is clear and the type faces used provide a variety of sizes and fonts, making the pages attractive. The information on issues such as poverty, agnosticism, sexism and fertility is presented rationally and with balance. I would recommend this text to teachers of RE for classroom use but it could also be used by individual students as a revision guide.
