Religion, Education and Adolescence: International and Empirical Perspectives

Synopsis

"Religious diversity, religious enthusiasm and religious misunderstanding remain at the heart of so much social, economic and political conflict in the world today. In this climate, religious educators have become increasingly aware of the significance of listening to the religious perceptions of adolescents, using the best research techniques pioneered by the empirical social sciences, including sociology, psychology and anthropology. This collection of studies, sponsored by the International Seminar on Religious Education and Values, draws together Christian, Islamic and Jewish perspectives from England, Germany, Israel, Norway, Turkey and Wales."

Excerpt

Since its inception in 1978, the International Seminar on Religious Education and Values has become the key meeting-place for many researchers in religious education across the world. The seminar which met in Norway in 2002 took as its theme religion, education and adolescence. We are pleased in this book to be able to make some of the formative contributions to the seminar available to a wider audience.

In preparing this manuscript for publication, we are grateful to the individual authors for developing these papers and for working with us to produce a coherence of presentation and style, and to our colleagues, Diane Drayson and Susan Thomas, who have worked with us on the text.

This volume also represents the well-established collaboration that exists between the Welsh National Centre for Religious Education and the North of England Institute for Christian Education, two Church-related foundations committed to research and development in religious education in schools and churches.
