This book examines the intersections of faith and religious diversity with educational practices. Attention is given to research-based narratives and studies that examine the personal and systemic implications of policy and practice through the lens of faith-based pedagogy and theory, as well as the need for attention to religious diversity as part of work centered in classrooms and beyond.

The intended purpose of this text is to spur conversation and thinking around faith and practice, faith and research, and the intersections of identity which stem from religious discourse. The terms religion and faith are defined broadly and inclusively, and a wide range of perspectives are both welcome and encouraged. The book functions as a call to action for attention on policy, research, and practice related to religious diversity and equity. This discussion includes the boundaries of faith-based practices.

Target Audience
The book is intended for researchers and educators with an interest in religious studies, equity, and practices, policies, and educational research related to religious diversity.

Recommended Topics
Faith in education, creating spaces for discussion around faith and culture, creating and sustaining inclusive environments, narrative studies and research-based first-person accounts related to faith and education/classroom practices, work on analysis of educational policy related to faith, literacy and literature-centered work around topics of faith, explorations of the links between multiculturalism and religious diversity.
