Research output: Book / ReportBook editingAcademic


This volume explores the field of Christian and Islamic education. Muslim and Christian scholars from Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey, Indonesia, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands describe various aspects of religious education at school, at home, in the mosque and church, via the media and in peer groups. The papers were presented and discussed at an authors’ conference at VU University Amsterdam, organized in close collaboration between the staff of its Centre of Islamic Theology and other scholars in religious education. The authors describe actual processes of education, reflect on religious identity formation and respect for other people, and the influences from home, school, mosque, and church, the media and “the street.”
