Welcoming Africa   S Children     Theological And Ministry Perspectives
Author: Jan Grobbelaar
Publisher: AOSIS

Pages: 308
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The purpose of this book is to combine perspectives of scholars from Africa on Child Theology from a variety of theological sub-disciplines to provide some theological and ministerial perspectives on this topic. The book disseminates original research and new developments in this study field, especially as relevant to the African context. In the process it addresses also the global need to hear voices from Africa in this academic field. It aims to convey the importance of considering Africa’s children in theologising. The different chapters represent diverse methodologies, but the central and common focus is to approach the subject from the viewpoint of Africa’s children. The individual authors’ varied theological sub-disciplinary dispositions contribute to the unique and distinct character of the book. Almost all chapters are theoretical orientated with less empirical but more qualitative research, although some of the chapters refer to empirical research that the authors have performed in the past. Most of the academic literature in the field of Child Theologies is from American or British-European origin. The African context is fairly absent in this discourse, although it is the youngest continent and presents unique and relevant challenges. This book was written by theological scholars from Africa, focussing on Africa’s children. It addresses not only theoretical challenges in this field but also provides theological perspectives for ministry with children and for important social change. Written from a variety of theological sub-disciplines, the book is aimed at scholars across theological sub-disciplines, especially those theological scholars interested in the intersections between theology, childhood studies and African cultural or social themes. It addresses themes and provides insights that are also relevant for specialist leaders and professionals in this field. No part of the book was plagiarised from another publication or published elsewhere.

For readers who have ever wondered what exactly the Roman Catholic Church teaches about predestination, original sin, the Virgin Mary, abortion, same-sex marriage, and other issues, Mulder explains all that — and much more — in simple language. Mulder, who was raised in the Protestant tradition and converted to Catholicism later in life, speaks from the perspective of having wrestled with his own beliefs over the years. With solid information — and without proselytizing — Mulder's What Does It Mean to Be Catholic? presents a truly fresh perspective on the distinctive features of the Catholic faith.

Welcome To The Grammar School Pressure Cooker  How Do Assessment Pressures Affect The Teaching And Learning Of Able  Gifted And Talented Students
Author: Imran Ahmed
Publisher: Lulu.com
Release Date: 2014-04
Pages: 50
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This study was designed to shed light an under-researched field, the pressures of working in a grammar school. The existing literature on this subject is best described as minimal. Therefore, the literature cited is often adapted or relates to the topic of general academic pressure, but not exclusively about grammar schools. Its purpose was to be used for academic and professional reference and should be viewed as a case study into a narrow and specific field. The findings of the study illustrated that Able Gifted and Talented students were largely unaffected by national examination estimates, in this instance Fischer Family Trust grades, but appeared to thrive on other pressures, such as internal aspirations. However, teachers seemed to feel stressed and pressurised by the expectations of such estimates and regarded them very negatively on the whole.

What Does It Mean To Be Holy Whole
Author: Timorthy F. Sedgwick
Publisher: Church Publishing, Inc.
Release Date: 2018
Pages: 64
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

We think of holy people as spiritual seekers, but holiness is more than being in touch with the holy. What is holiness all about? What is wholeness of life? What are practices of love? What is spirituality all about? What is worship all about? Life, according to Timothy Sedgwick, is not a series of experiences or a search for increasing novelty. Rather, there is a more fundamental desire to be whole which characterizes our human experience. This is what Christian faith is all about. It takes practice. It takes community. It takes time. It is a life of loss and love, lament and joy. And, in short, this is what holiness is about: It is a way of life Christians call grace and salvation.
