The transition from adolescence to adulthood is a time of great confusion for pupils, who are confronted with many different religious and secular beliefs and must find their own position. The 10th year of upper secondary school also means working more and more on a scientific level, preparing themselves for the final two years of schooling to receive qualification for university studies.
The key aspects of this volume include methodological approaches to understanding the Bible, Christian beliefs about the Resurrection, ethical questions of everyday life, guidelines for discerning own judgments, Buddhistic religiosity. The 12 chapters concern:
1) Religion in everyday life (religious socialization, adolescence and spirituality)
2) Religion in public life (religious freedom)
3) Christ in the world (mission, tolerance, understanding)
4)-6) The Holy Scriptures (understanding and interpreting the Bible)
7)-8) Life, death and eternal life
9)-10) Truth and possession
11)-12) A very different religion: Buddhism
