"Adds an essential but overlooked dimension to the ongoing discussion of indoctrination through a detailed analysis of the institutional context of indoctrination ... This book will help fill a regrettable gap in both the scholarly and the public discussions of indoctrination and its implications for the practice of religious education in the home and the school ... It will not settle debates; but it can raise the level of the discussion by stimulating reconsideration of entrenched positions on all sides of the debates." Noel Shuell, Faculty of Education, Memorial University. "Thiessen makes a significant contribution to the debate concerning religious education by systematically answering the accusations of indoctrination through a thorough analysis of the terminology used." Spencer Boudreau, Department of Religion and Philosophy in Education, McGill University.
