Overview

The emergence of modern communication and transportation is lubricating a period of rapid change that Osmer (Christian education, Princeton Theological Seminary) and Schweitzer (practical theology and religious education, U. of Tübingen, Germany) say presents a challenge to religious education. They look at how the field viewed the challenges during the course of the 20th century, and whether they still remain in force or have changed so much that they call for an entirely new way of thinking about them. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Featuring a unique comparative approach to religious education, the book first explores the importance of studying the styles and methods of religious education within differing social contexts, and it presents modernization, globalization, and postmodernism as key frameworks for such research. Next, central figures and texts in twentieth-century religious education in both Germany and the United States are examined and compared. The last section of the book points out the challenges facing religious education in the new millennium and offers constructive proposals that will interest not only Protestants and Catholics but also members of Jewish, Muslim, and other faith communities.
