ZIMMERMANN, Mirjam. What is Children's Theology? Children's Theology as theological competence: Development, differentiation, methods. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2015, vol.71, n.3, pp.01-06. ISSN 2072-8050. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/HTS.V71I3.2848.
Children's Theology, theologising with children, or Child Theology has become an established concept in the discipline of religious education in Germany. The discipline departs from the point of view that children have a right to their religion, which makes the process of religious education the focal point. It is, however, important to understand the theology generated by children and also to create interaction with their religious views. This requires dialogue in which relevant questions are to be considered and discussed. The challenges for religious educators are subsequently treated.
