Summary
At the end of the twentieth century, many people believe that U.S. public schools are in decline. In Holy Sparks, Philip Wexler likens our schools to the broken vessels of the Old Testament, but sees in their broken shards the holy sparks of divine inspiration. Drawing broadly on cultural criticism, social theory and religious tradition, Wexler discerns a spiritual reawakening that pervades all of late-twentieth-century culture. He insists that only by paying attention to the holy sparks that still exist in our children and in our schools will we ever be able to revive our educational system, and by extension, our future. Holy Sparks is a masterly cultural analysis that transcends the boundaries of the book to become a prayer for the next generation
