"Leslie Francis has performed a valuable service in assemnbling an extensive and reliable collection of data".
International Journal of education and religion
"a beautifully logical and symmetrical structure, this text takes the reader comprehensibly through fifteen values areas"
"the most authoritative, non-philosophical book to have appeared…"
"a collection that needs to be read in full and with care… The sheer size of this sample and the established skill that Francis brings to the interrogation of the database will help to navigate this anxiety while at the same time provoking questioning both of the grand view offered in the book and the mini-view those working with young people form in their daily encounters."
