The History of Christian Education in Korea before National Liberation (1945)
Christian Education in Korea after National Liberation (1945)
Basic Themes of the Alternative Pedagogy for Integration
Modern religious education has been divided into two different emphases: the human development or conversion approach and the social functional approach. The human development approach tends to focus on psychological structures of a human being, while in the social functional approach, transformed social realities are the main criteria that determine the efficacy of Christian religious education. Is it possible to overcome the tension between social and personal dimensions in Christian religious education? This paper describes the history of Christian education in Korea as a particular context of both separation and integration between personal and social aspects of Christian religious education. The purpose of such description and interpretation is not only to reveal the problem but also to discover basic, yet historically verified, themes that would encourage an alternative and more balanced pedagogy. In the end, this paper suggests some basic principles in crafting a holistic pedagogy for Korean churches that ensures both public and private dimensions of faith.
