Abstract/Summary This thesis attempts to show that although Christian education has lost theological location and prominence in the life of the Western Protestant church, the emerging Church movement as an intentionally postmodern approach to ministry in the contemporary context can offer insights to reinterpret Christian education in this context. Christian education is given a new interpretive framework and is theologically located at the intersection of doxology and dogma. The importance of the Christian worshipping community as the most appropriate setting for Christian education is explored, and a teaching and learning matrix developed using worship as the basis for enhancing Christian formation and ethos.
