A distance is opening up between Catholic education and the rich intellectual heritage of the Catholic Church. Education in a Catholic Perspective explores Catholic philosophical and theological foundations for both education per se and for Catholic education in particular. With contributions spanning the theological foundations of Catholic education, the interplay of theology and education, and discussions of the social and missional dimensions of education, this book will be of considerable interest to educators and students of Catholic education, to academics in the fields of applied theology and philosophy and to those with an interest in the foundations of education.

Review quote

'This book is a tour de force of the intellectual heritage that has a bearing on Catholic education and schooling. It has succeeded in its purpose of "critical retrieval" of Catholic traditions in philosophy, theology and educational theory that can help with the charting of a more meaningful and relevant Catholic education today.'Graham Rossiter, Australian Catholic University, Australia
