Jones Medine, Carolyn M.; Penner, Todd; Lehman, Marjorie – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2015
These three articles deal with the issue of faith in the classroom--whether one should teach "to," "for," or "against" faith.

Lose, David J.; Mikoski, Gordon S.; Crowley, Eileen D.; Jacobson, Rolf; Cormode, Scott; Conklin-Miller, Jeffrey – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2015
When five theological schools realized (a) their graduates affirmed vocation as central to their theology and practice, yet (b) the parishioners of their graduates nevertheless did not feel called, they knew they had to do something.

Clingerman, Forrest; O'Brien, Kevin J. – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2015
The undergraduate study of religion is predominantly undertaken by non-majors who are meeting a general education requirement.

Irvine, Andrew – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2015
The issue of comparison is a vexing one in religious and theological studies, not least for teachers of comparative religion in study abroad settings. We try to make familiar ideas fresh and strange, in settings where students may find it hard not to take "fresh" and "strange" as signs of existential threat. The author explores…

Palmer, Norris W. – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2015
This essay is concerned with study abroad experiences as opportunities for student cognitive development, using the interpretive lens of educational psychologist William G. Perry.

Conservative (fundamentalist, evangelical) Christian students present a general theological worldview that often correlates with significant anxiety.

Fleming, Daniel; Lovat, Terence – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2015
The article is a response to this journal's call for papers on metaphors for teaching, and also draws from a previous publication in which Kent Eilers developed a methodology for teaching global theologies. In this methodology, the ultimate goal was the development of "hermeneutical dispositions of empathy, hospitality, and receptivity toward…
