Through his own faith story, Father Purnell presents a vision of how we come to know God and of how we share our understanding. Within the overall context of the Christian community, the three main settings in which faith sharing between adults and young people takes place – family, parish, school – are explored in some depth.
‘Patrick Purnell’s achievement was a gently historic one: to re-set religious education in a series of large and life-giving perspectives; of human experience and understanding, of theology, psychology and social history; of process and journey. After a decade his book retains its freshness.’
‘Father Purnell’s book is as relevant today as when it was first published a decade ago. Parents, priests, teachers and catechists will find it personally challenging and an invaluable guide to understanding how others grow in faith.’
Director, Catholic Education Service
‘I think Father Purnell’s book has stood the test of time remarkably well. It still helps people understand their experience and recognise the importance of their faith. A great number of people must be deeply indebted to him.’
