Sample text

The Christian faith should be ‘willing to take up the basin and the towel and be a servant’ (ibid. 15) Not everyone shares this vision of the servant faith quite in John Hull’s terms. In countries where certain churches and the state have an historic association, not least the UK, the maintenance of a Christian presence at the centres of power, or a privileged position in the administrative structures supporting religious education in state schools, is still sincerely seen by some as providing a valuable opportunity and surer base for serving the community.

His commitment to it became even more explicit later when he writes of the need for pupils to ‘learn from religion in ways which will enrich them and deepen their humanity’ (Hull 1982: xv). Most recently his support is further confirmed in his outline and discussion of the 14 Dennis Bates Gift to the Child project on which he worked together with Michael Grimmitt and a team of teacher fellows (Hull 2000). In this, he writes that, reversing the common view that the purpose of RE was to enhance the children’s understanding of religion, the team felt that ‘the purpose of religious education was to make a contribution to the human and educational development of the child.

However, a caveat must be entered here; as we have seen above, John Hull also sees the ‘liberal individualistic type of spirituality’ embodying numinous and mystical experience as inferior to ‘the spirituality of justice and freedom’ which for him is the spirituality of the Kingdom of God. Cooling and Wright are also correct in their contention that something resembling a ‘universal monotheistic faith’ or ‘generic notion of religion’ does figure in John Hull’s thought, but they do not represent it fully or accurately enough.
