Drawing on Cornel West's prophetic revision of American pragmatism and fictional cases of teaching from Toni Morrison's Beloved, Teaching at the Crossroads of Faith and School develops an alternative conception of the role of the teacher for a contemporary educational milieu marked by increasing religious diversity and marred by controversy over the appropriate relationship between religion and education.
