Afrocentric Christian Worldview and Student Spiritual Development: Tapping a Global Stream of Knowledge
Edgell, Margaret S.
Journal of Education & Christian Belief, v11 n1 p49-62 2007
A localized ethnography of African Christian students revealed consistently robust Christian faith across all respondents, the core elements of which were rooted in an explicit Afrocentric worldview. These findings support multicultural critiques of classic student spiritual development theory, and point toward further research from a multicultural frame into the many ways that Christian students form their worldviews, form their identities, and act on their beliefs.
