    Into the Classroom is a series of eleven new books designed for second-level teachers beginning the new Leaving Certificate Religious Education syllabus. Each of the books covers all the content in the relevant syllabus section. With their accessible and engaging commentary, they will also be of great interest to third-level students, educators and a general readership.

    Worship, Prayer and Ritual explores expressions of the spiritual dimension of human life in a variety of cultures and contexts. It examines some of the patterns of ritual and worship found in religions with particular attention to the Christian traditions and evaluates the impact of those patterns on Irish society and culture. In keeping with the intention of the syllabus, it encourages an openness to personal spiritual development.

    Christopher O'DOnnell OCarm has taught theology and spirituality for many years in the Milltown Institute, Dublin. Among his many publications are Ecclesia: A Theological Encyclopedia of the Church and Prayer: Insights from Saint Thérèse of Lisieux
