Education and Mission-School as Agent of Evangelisation

School as Agent of Evangelisation Rudolf C Heredia This essay treats not only of Christian education within the missionary enterprise, hut extends to the socio-political impact beyond as well. The first is discussed within the ecclesiastical context of conversion and evangelisation and is crucial to the understanding of the inspiration and gradual evolution of missionary institutions. The second is framed by a more secular discussion and is important because of the pioneering role the missions had in bringing western education to India and the effect this had on Indian society. The author concludes by arguing for a socio-political analysis of and a contextualised theology of secular action for Christian education if the liberating potential of its ideals and purposes is to be realised.
