Cults in the classroom: The challenge of religious pluralism to pedagogy and curriculum in Australian theological education

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract

The changing demographic nature of religion in Australian society has important
repercussions for theological education. One area here is the approach to
teaching theology graduates about non-traditional, alternative, and novel
religious developments. This chapter looks at the history of theological education
in this area, surveys some common challenges to student learning, and offers
some suggestions for how theological educators might better integrate teaching
about New Religions into the wider theological curriculum.
