The "Listening To" series introduces students to the challenging and varied nature of religion. By "listening to " members of different faiths talking about what it means to be a Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jew, Muslim or Sikh, young people are encouraged to explore the human face of religion, and make informed personal responses to the beliefs and values of others. Pupils are encouraged to see the six major religions in Britain as living faiths which affect people's everyday lives and their attitudes to the world around them. The books aim to foster a willingness and ability to listen to others and to respect different ways of life, and to discourage stereotyping and generalizations.
