The empirical study on the broad spectrum of Muslim children in Germany and their relations to God is fundamental for the scientific understanding of the development and formation of their faith. At the same time the findings of this work are also highly relevant for the further development of an academic and empirically based Islamic religious education both in a secular and in a highly individualized society.
The aim of this book is to provide a framework for the life of young believers in a religiously plural society, in which the individual relationship to God and the reflexivity of one's own religion are a decisive prerequisite for preventing radicalization and moral rigidity. This book favors an anthropological shift and an approach that takes the potential of children with their theology and their search for the meaning of life seriously.
