While important strides are being made to improve religious education at the national level, there is much to be learned by looking at the subject from a global perspective. This volume is a first-and very significant-effort to reap the benefits of sharing educational successes and challenges between countries, in this case the United States and Germany. Featuring a unique comparative approach to religious education, this volume is sure to spark the interest of those in the field. The book first explores the importance of comparing religious education within differing social contexts, and it introduces "modernization," globalization," and "postmodernism" as key terms for such research. Next, central figures and texts in twentieth-century religious education in both Germany and the United States are examined and compared. In the last section of the book the authors point to the challenges that religious education faces in the new millennium, and they offer constructive proposals that will interest not only Protestants and Catholics but also members of Jewish, Muslim, and other faith communities.

While major strides are being made to improve religious education in churches nationwide, much can be learned by looking at the subject from a global perspective. "Religious Education between Modernization and Globalization" is a first -- and very significant -- effort to reap the benefits of sharing educational successes and challenges between countries, in this case the United States and Germany. Featuring a unique comparative approach to religious education, the book first explores the importance of studying the styles and methods of religious education within differing social contexts, and it presents modernization, globalization, and postmodernism as key frameworks for such research. Next, central figures and texts in twentieth-century religious education in both Germany and the United States are examined and compared. The last section of the book points out the challenges facing religious education in the new millennium and offers constructive proposals that will interest not only Protestants and Catholics but also members of Jewish, Muslim, and other faith communities.
