This essay explores a tension in the Catholic theological classroom brought about when teachers aim at dismantling racial injustice with resources from antiracist pedagogy.

Hanchin, Timothy – Religious Education, 2018
That religious and theological education today largely neglects reading as a spiritual discipline is a profound pedagogical oversight.

The author argues that adolescents are not only philosophers, as Kohlberg and Gilligan once claimed, but should also be viewed as theologians.
