about

This book challenges the faith-oriented conversion that encourages an exclusivist and monological approach to religious education in schools. «Living the Future in Dialogue» develops a new pedagogical paradigm for Nigeria: the «Integral and Transformative Model». Using a systematic approach, the book discusses the Christian tradition in light of the existence of other religions and worldviews. Religious education must encourage pupils to develop their own religious identities and respond to plurality to become members of a multicultural and multi-religious society. It is presented as an enrichment of a human being in relation to the self, world and God and the community as the locus where the human person is taught to develop the language of love, trust and hope.
Chizurum Ann Ugbor belongs to a Congregation of Daughters of Mary, Mother of Mercy. She received her PhD in Pastoral Theology from the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium. She is currently serving at Abia State University, Department of Religious Studies and Philosophy, Uturu, Nigeria.
