The Christian Life Studies series aims to help students in the first four years of secondary education explore and respond to a Christian understanding of life. It is underpinned by Biblical theological principles, thus enabling the exploration of deep questions of life. What is real? Who is God? What's wrong with the world? How should I live? It encourages a quality-learning environment through engagement, and focuses on issues of significance for Australian youth in secondary schools. This title, Christian Life Studies 2, explores the effects of the Holy Spirit at work in Christian believers and in the world. Students are helped to make ethical choices and to understand their personal growth, the importance of relationships, and the possibilities for fruitful engagement in the world today. Each unit of the text covers about three weeks of R.E. class time, with approximately 12 units per year. There is a logical ordering in the sequencing of units, but because each unit can stand alone, teachers are able to choose units of particular relevance to their school's requirements.
There is also enough conceptual material in each unit for the teacher to have the flexibility to spend more time on one topic that may have particular interest and meaning for their students. The Authors Peter Turnbull has taught for over 25 years in Melbourne Anglican Schools with a passion to communicate the Christian Faith to youth. He has degrees in Applied Science and Theology. He presently is working as an Ordained Chaplain at Trinity Grammar in Melbourne.

She is currently teaching at Northside Christian College Bundoora Victoria.
