KIRKUS REVIEW

For the professional educator and for the more serious parent (though this is a more wishful than likely public), this is a discussion of our ""religious illiteracy"" today, of the growing need for religious education in the face of Communism and an accelerated increase of a divorce, delinquency and crime, and a plea to discard the fear of sectarianism which has kept religious education out of public schools. With both historical and statistical substantiation, he gives the case for religion within the schools which need not be denominational, shows how the recent Supreme Court decision in the Champaign case (which ruled against religious education classes on released time) has brought the matter to a head, and argues for the cultural as well as moral values to be derived therefrom.
