Catholic Education (Paperback)
A Lifelong Journey
Catholic Education: A Lifelong Journey is an exciting investigation of Catholic education in the parish, home and school, exploring the various ways Catholic education is present not only in Catholic schooling but throughout the whole of a Catholic person’s life.
This extensive volume brings together leading and emerging scholars in Catholic education, from both Ireland and Britain, who offer important insights into the lifelong nature of the Catholic education journey, and seek to stimulate a deep sense of enquiry, exploration, reflection and action.
The book comprises two parts. The first begins with an analysis of theological education and adult learning, before examining the state of adult religious education in Ireland and exploring how Catholic education is interrelated with the life of faith, breathing in and out the Spirit of God's love. As a whole, this volume encourages an integrated, faith-community focused, intergenerational, open, creative, and generous approach to what Catholic education – broadly conceived of – can be.
