This ebook; Christian Faith; Formation and Education (PDF) discusses the relationship between faith; formation; and education. Rooted in a variety of discourses; the ebook offers original insights into the formation and education of the human being; both practical and theoretical. Issues are considered within a context of contemporary tensions generated by an increasingly pluralist society with antipathy to religious faith and debated from interdenominational Christian perspectives. Including chapters by an international team of experts; the volume demonstrates how the Christian faith holds significance for educational practice and human development. It argues against the common assumption that there can be a neutral approach to education; whilst at the same time advocating a critical dimension to faith education. It brings fresh thinking about formation and faith; which demands attention given the fast-changing educational; political; and socio-cultural forces of today. It will appeal to college students and researchers involved in Christian educational practice.
