Foundations for an Intercultural Philosophy of Christian Education
Ospino, Hosffman
Religious Education, v104 n3 p303-314 May-Jun 2009
This article proposes a number of fundamental principles that seek to establish a solid platform for a philosophy of Christian Education that is culturally responsive and responsible. In this theological-practical reflection the author affirms that the context where most processes of Christian Education take place in the United States today is one profoundly marked by cultural diversity. Consequently, the "locus," the "subject," and the "methodological questions" concerning Christian Education must develop an intercultural perspective. There is an urgent need for effective intercultural models of Christian Education. The article provides a horizon to envision and ground such models. (Contains 4 footnotes.)
