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 man in his pluralist world. With this book Michael Okoh inaugurates a fundamental revision. He brings traditional African education and
values alongside Christian ideals into dialogue with the „Western progressive learning approaches.“ Through that, he paves new ways to religious education activity in Nigeria, particularly in Igboland.
