There is a great deal of interest in bringing better appreciation of ritual into religious classes, but many teachers are uncertain how to go about doing this. This is the first resource to address the issues specific to teaching this subject. A stellar cast of contributors addresses a wide range of topics in teaching ritual studies, from how to add to a general religion course and how to use field trips to handling the challenges to faith that can emerge when focusing on ritual. This volume will notonly benefit individual instructors but help establish ritual as an essential component in the study of religion.
