5.0 out of 5 stars Guru Nanak clear concise and up to date, 19 May 2004
By A Customer
'The book aims to present Guru Nanak 'in a way that opens up people's perceptions of the Guru for discussion and reflection and relates his insights and experiences to our own contemporary concerns'. Set out in chapters addressing thirteen key questions such as 'Does life have a meaning?', 'Are labels and uniforms necessary?'. 'Are we all equal?', 'Do we need a sense of direction?', the book meets a real need in the RE world - helping teachers learn about Sikhism and resourcing them to help pupils to learn from it. If you are feeling insecure about your own subject knowledge on Sikhism or are uncertain about how you can help pupils 'learn from' their work in this area, this is the book for you.
Grounded in real experience and questions, the book relates authentic insights and understanding of Guru Nanak, his teaching and its formative impact on Sikhism in an accessible and readable way, engaging interest. It is attractively illustrated with art work, traditional illustrations and photographs providing a stimulating resource for teachers. Motivated and more able pupils would find this an accessible and stimulating text, but less able pupils would struggle with it. Discussion questions are integrated within the body of the text, the only specific teaching activities being outlined on one page for teachers at the end of the book. Highly recommended for teachers and as a thought-provoking text for more able pupils.'
