Schools and Religious Communities' Contributions to the Religious Formation of Christian Youth
de Kock, A.
International Journal of Christianity & Education, v19 n2 p121-134 Jul 2015
This article questions the implications of tribal forms of religious socialization for (religious) schools' and communities' contributions to the religious formation of Christian youth. It clarifies that the religious education of a new generation of young Christians requires authorities and communities to connect in a worldwide pedagogical space that includes contemporary participating youth. This argument is made against the background of the Dutch case, where young Christians grow up in a de-institutionalized world increasingly influenced by multi-religious and secular voices.
