Book Description

Christian Faith, Formation, and Education is a PDF file that addresses the connection between faith, formation, and education. The ebook is based on a number of different discourses, and it provides novel insights into the creation and education of the human person, both in a practical and theoretical sense. The issues are discussed from the perspective of interdenominational Christians while taking into account the context of modern difficulties. These tensions are caused by an increasingly pluralistic society that is hostile toward religious religion. This publication explains how the Christian religion holds value for educational practice and human development. It contains chapters written by an international team of professionals. While doing so, it argues against the widespread notion that there may be a neutral approach to education and advocates for a critical dimension to be included in faith education. It introduces new ways of thinking about formation and religion, both of which require attention in light of the rapid change that is occurring in today’s educational, political, and socio-cultural factors. College students and academics who are actively involved in Christian educational practice will find it interesting.
