Volume III of the Spirituality and Ethics in Education series bring together textual, empirical and pedagogical approaches to enriching spiritual education as a significant multi-disciplinary and cross-curricular influence in the modern world. The chapters presented have been selected from international contributions presented at the 3rd International Conference on Spiritual Education. The writers include prominent international researchers in the discipline from the UK, the United States, Canada, Australia and China. The strengths of the book lie in its international appeal, research-based orientation, and interdisciplinary character. The book will be the first coherent presentation of spiritual education as a distinctive field of academic enquiry in its own right.
