Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0883473836, Hardcover)

One of the most influential educators of our time, Thomas H. Groome proposes a spiritual vision certain to inspire the heart of every teacher and parent. With ecumenical sensitivity, Groome draws upon the core convictions of Catholic Christianity and its rich educational tradition to weave a way of educating that has universal appeal.
He addresses and brings wisdom to the foundational issues that concern al educators regardless of their religious tradition. This philosophy-cum-spirituality is deeply humanizing. A vision of educating for life, it will enhance the work of every teacher and parent, in every school-public and private, in every faith community and family context.
At a time of urgent concern for the quality of education taking place in our schools, Groome offers a bold spiritual vision that gets to the heart of why and how we educate. He insists that it is not money that will save our schools, it's values. Such values include:
* Appreciating the goodness of dignity of all people
* Fostering moral decision-making
* Working for justice and compassion
* Respecting one another and nature
* Drawing the wisdom of our many traditions
* Forming the whole person
