Item description for Educating for Life: A Spiritual Vision for Every Teacher and Parent by Thomas H. Groome...

One of the most influential educators of our time, Thomas H. Groome proposes a spiritual vision certain to inspire the heart of every teacher and parent. With ecumenical sensitivity, Groome draws upon the core convictions of Catholic Christianity and its rich educational tradition to weave a way of educating that has universal appeal.
He addresses and brings wisdom to the foundational issues that concern al educators regardless of their religious tradition. This philosophy-cum-spirituality is deeply humanizing. A vision of educating for life, it will enhance the work of every teacher and parent, in every school-public and private, in every faith community and family context.
At a time of urgent concern for the quality of education taking place in our schools, Groome offers a bold spiritual vision that gets to the heart of why and how we educate. He insists that it is not money that will save our schools, it's values. Such values include:
* Appreciating the goodness of dignity of all people
* Fostering moral decision-making
* Working for justice and compassion
* Respecting one another and nature
* Drawing the wisdom of our many traditions
* Forming the whole person

Reviews - What do customers think about Educating for Life: A Spiritual Vision for Every Teacher and Parent?

Inspiring, but longer than it needs to be.  Apr 23, 2005
I have a love-hate relationship with this book. On the one hand, it inspired a great deal of thought and has really changed the way I look at religious education, and my own job as a religious educator. On the other hand, Groome can be *very* long-winded. This book could have been half as long without sacrificing very much at all.

But I have to recommend it -- it is one of the best books about religious education I've ever read.
What it truly means to have a Catholic education  Sep 14, 2002
Educating For Life: A Spiritual Vision For Every Teacher And Parent by Thomas Groome (Professor of Pastoral Theology and Religious Education, Boston College), is an informed and informative examination of what it truly means to have a Catholic education. Examining modern spiritual concerns both at home and at the school, Professor Groome offers a wealth of insights to help the reader cope with the latest flood of distractions that modern, hyper-connected life throws at the faithful. Education For Life is a highly recommended, accessibly readable, thoughtfully insightful, and quite personable look at the meaning and future of Christian education.
A Guide for Every Christian Educator  Feb 29, 2000
In this work, Tom Groome proposes to offer a philosophy for catholic education and a catholic philosophy for education. He does a fine job of offering both and it will be of interest to any Christian educator who seeks to integrate universal principles of Christian faith into his or her spirituality of teaching. It is simple to read, yet offers more than just a simplistic rendering. As one of Tom's students, and as a professional religious educator myself, I heartily recommend it.
