Item description for God's Wisdom: Toward a Theology of Education by Peter C. Hodgson...
Overview An understanding of the educational process in theological terms. Hodgson argues that God's Wisdom, which is incarnate in paradigmatic teachers like Jesus, forms and transforms humans by evoking critical thinking, heightened imagination, and liberating practice. Sheds new light on liberal education.
This book explores and affirms the religious dimension of education. Peter Hodgson argues that the passage of knowledge from teacher to student is in many ways analogous to God's method of imparting divine wisdom by leading the human spirit into its widest range of possibilities.
