n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Learning inter-religious encounter : a social constructivist perspective

Volume 34, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



The article presents a constructivist perspective on inter-religious encounter. The narrative of a personal journey with inter-religious encounter is told from childhood to the most recent experiences with the issue. Constructionism as a serious post-modern scientific trend is looked at briefly, highlighting some of the characteristics and underlying assumptions. In borrowing extensively from Jonassen in his understanding of constructivist learning environments, the narrative on inter-religious encounter in the article is assessed against the characteristics of constructivist learning environments as identified by Jonassen.
