Plummer, Kenneth; Taeger, Stephan; Burton, Melissa – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2020
Student learning in religious educational settings is subject to the same pedagogical forces, both effective and ineffective, as found in secular settings.

Religious schools in Spain and Italy have been focused for centuries on spreading the Bible's message among students.
