Fostering Christian Faith in Schools and Christian Communities through Igbo Traditional Values

Towards a Holistic Approach to Christian Religious Education and Catechesis in Igboland (NIgeria)

By Michael Okoh

Religious education in Nigeria is in a state of transformation, owing to the country's current pluralist nature among other factors. In the process, concepts of religion and education are revisited and reassessed in order to make them meaningful to mankind in his pluralist world. With this book, author Michael Okoh inaugurates a fundamental revision. He brings traditional African education and values alongside Christian ideals into dialogue with the "Western progressive learning approaches," paving new ways for religious education activity in Nigeria, particularly in Igboland.
