Die Ausgaben der Evangelical Review of Theology der Weltweiten Evangelischen Allianz sind als PDF online gestellt. Damit ist mein Aufsatz, der wichtige Findings meiner Dissertation wiedergibt, öffentlich zugänglich.
Der Aufsatz fasst mein 10-jähriges Ringen um die Frage der Bildung in einem post-christlichen Kontext zusammen. Ich stelle ihm einen Ausschnitt aus dem einführenden Aufsatz von Thomas Schirrmacher voran:
Many Christians have a divided faith. While the Bible is responsible for internal, religious questions, varying standards are followed in questions relating to commerce, education, politics, or church policy. As fathers in the home some may live according to other values than those they pursue as representatives in parliament; as business men some may live according to other values than they pursue as church elders. Christians all too often have separated their knowledge of character, their knowledge of ethics, and their doctrine from each other.
What is so often asked for today, at least in the area of education, is a comprehensive, holistic view of life and the world—precisely what is often missing. Christian parents, at least in many cases when it comes to practice, edu- cate the character of the child, while the church teaches them biblical knowl- edge, and the school conveys learning. Too seldom do we ask if these three entities educate according to different standards and to what extent this is helpful for the child.
