Inquiry into Religious and Philosophical Issues provides an educational experience of both
wonder and discovery. The text’s focus on epistemology applies this inquisitive discipline to
an array of topics, including religious faith, ethics, personal meaning and happiness. Sources
from philosophy, theology, and psychology interact with debates, role playing, essays, and
other student-centered activities to encourage meaningful thinking and engagement.

Students are taught skills to develop personal awareness and resilience in order to help them
flourish. Complex subjects such as religion and philosophy often lead to difficult questions
and ideas that, for many students, go unheard. With Inquiry into Religious and Philosophical
Issues, these questions and ideas will now have a voice.

Teachers and students of philosophy, religious education and the Theory of Knowledge course
within the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, will find this an accessible
resource. Gifted and talented programs wanting to provide materials which will stimulate a
high level of critical thinking skills will also find this text useful.

Reviews for Inquiry into Philosophical and Religious Issues

Curiosity is a gift, which young people have in abundance. In many ways, philosophy is the discipline that honors the gift of curiosity by exploring the things that matter, and how we go about exploring. To this end, Rosemary Laoulach has written an introduction to religious education, with clarity and substance, which will encourage young people to think, question, and explore. --Steven Ogden, Charles Sturt University, author The Church, Authority, and Foucault In her book titled Inquiry into Philosophical and Religious Issues, Rosemary writes about issues in a way that encourages students to ask questions everyone should ask themselves at some stage in their lives. Being inquisitive and wondering about ideas, building patterns, making connections, and thinking beneath the surface of things is crucial to endeavoring to find answers to life questions. . . . An engaging and resourceful book that will inspire students to become learners who enjoy asking the big questions and thinking independently. --Maria Caristo, St. Luke's Grammar School
