Weaving together history, philosophy, and curriculum, Grappling with the Good offers a vision of public education in which students learn to engage respectfully with the diversity of beliefs about how to live together in society. Robert Kunzman argues that we can and should help students learn how to talk about religion and morality, and bring together our differing visions of life. He describes how such an approach might work in the K-12 setting, explores central philosophical principles, and shares his ongoing experiences and insights in helping students to "grapple with the good."

Review quote

"This is a book of great significance and originality. In an age of increasing religious diversity, Kunzman provides a powerful argument that public schools should renounce the neutrality or hands-off doctrine that has characterized their attitude toward religion since the 1950s. Kunzman writes like a dream, with a no-nonsense style that is exceptionally clear and concise for a work that covers extremely difficult ideas."
