The Seeking Religion series at KS3 offers a colourful, imaginative and easy-to-read resource for Religious Education.

It has been designed to provide a balanced, factual and culturally sensitive approach to the major world religions, along with opportunities for students to explore and reflect on their own beliefs and values.

This new edition has been revised and enlarged to reflect the necessary balance between the 'learning about' and 'learning from' approaches to Religious Education, and to offer a wider range of imaginative and challenging questions and activities for students.
