There are occasions when a book warrants the attention and space for a deeper review. Here, Bill Gent provides a critical overview of a book that brings together the writings of a significant scholar in the fields of religious studies and education. The collection highlights selected writings from Robert Jackson’s international career in education, providing a perspective on the historic development of RE in the UK and internationally. The book also maps the journey of the author himself, with a strong autobiographical thread setting his work in religious studies/education in the context of key events and experiences in his own life, from teaching in schools to becoming an eminent researcher and scholar. This is an important book and, as Bill points out, an expensive one; however, it is available as an e-book and therefore accessible to a wider range of readers.
