For a diversity of reasons – the resurgence of religion in global governance, globalisation, concerns over social and community cohesion, the worldwide growth in religiously inspired extremism – religious education has in recent years, enjoyed an international renaissance.
Many theorists and practitioners have added to the debate with a great variety of perspectives. Most have only succeeded in providing a partial view of religion and thus a degraded vision of religion in education.
On Holy Ground offers a new approach to the theory and practice of religious education. It will be the only book of its kind to provide a systematic examination of how contemporary theory and pedagogy of religious education are covertly rooted in a variety of aesthetic, philosophical, phenomenological, psychological, scientific, theological, and related cognate disciplines.
A major critical review of religious education internationally, On Holy Ground provides an original contribution to the theory and practice of religious education, and a serious and significant challenge to teachers, theorists and researchers in religious education worldwide.
