A Study on the Significance of Spiritual Learning and Teaching through Augustine's "Confessions"
Shim, Seung-hwan
Religious Education, v112 n5 p557-568 2017
This study will examine the significance of spirituality and how to cultivate it in this modern era, in which introspection on the meaning of life is lacking due to issues including consumerism, violence, terror, hedonism, and the influences of an instrumental education environment, through Augustine's "Confessions." This study suggests the significance of spiritual education as the sharing of stories of spiritual life to sublimate the joy of spiritual learning achieved after overcoming vulnerability and limitations as a human to the joy of sharing and teaching through "Confessions", by Augustine.
