“I would use it with KS3 classes to illustrate and bring to life the challenges people of faith have encountered before us. The book is designed exceptionally well and the illustrations really bring the characters to life. It is a wonderful resource to use when planning – thought-provoking, stimulating and thoroughly engaging. For non-RE specialists it is an ideal resource to use when planning.” – Michael Flannery, St Benedict’s Catholic College, Liverpool.
