The Future of Protestant Religious Education in an Age of Globalization
2018, 170 pages, paperback, 27,90 €, ISBN 978-3-8309-3876-7
This book provides both insights into the Protestant tradition in education as well as its meaning for the future of the church, for society and for individual persons. It follows an innovative approach by combining perspectives from three different contexts – Germany with its important Protestant starting points in the Reformation, the United States as a country which has been strongly influenced by Protestantism, and South Korea with its comparatively young Protestant tradition.
The book is based on a combination of international points of view, on transnational cooperation, on comparative insights, and on making constant reference to a global horizon. Its presentations and ideas not only address globalization as a driving force behind many future developments, but also demonstrate an exercise of global educational thinking.
