Education represents the total process in content of passing knowledge from one person to another.
It is viewed as one of the strongest instruments of individual, communal and national development.
Nations that have witnessed serious advancement have largely relied on education of their citizenry as harbingers of such growth.
Despite this hallowed value of education for centuries, there has been a massive question mark on the effectiveness of knowledge
and learning attained by humanity. Serious gaps exist in the ultimate outcome of the processes of education when the values and
standards of morality, ethical values and attitudinal persuasions of citizens of the global community are assessed.
In spite of the creations of many laws in the post-World War II era, including the Universal Declarations of Human Rights (1948),
the world has continued to slide into a needless and heedless descent into primitivism and depravity in all facets of life.
The United Nations has failed to herald global peace. Or how otherwise can one justify the brutality of human thinking as reflected
in the level of decadence, insensitivity, corruption and man's inhumanity to man as witnessed in several global, regional, national or
communal crises? These include the Ukrainian crisis, apartheid policies, the 9/11 security reversals, the upsurge of terrorist attacks
in several countries of the world including but not limited to the United Kingdom (UK), Syria, Sudan, Kenya and not far from our clime,
the numerous Boko Haram attacks in Northern Nigeria.
The above examples capture the imperative for a re-jigging of the global educational processes, especially the curricula and systems
of learning away from the existing paradigms of learning. Existing systems have failed humanity in the aspect of integrating into the
teaching and learning processes intentional character formation, higher standard of morality and ethical values centred on faith and the
existence of God, the Creator of the universe. The scientific creed of empiricism and experimentation especially from the Renaissance era
has failed to give peace and direction to the world. Economic theories have failed to prevent recession and depression at global and national scale,
while democracy has not resulted in the envisaged good life for all. Certainly, there is a missing link. Some have identified that link to be
Christ-centered approach to teaching, learning and professional practices and living in general which has not be globally acknowledged.
What truly is the way forward in our crisis-ridden world? What new areas will provide hope and direction, especially with the view to providing
the missing link to the current crises? What is the role of faith to the teaching and learning processes? In what ways can the integration of faith in
teaching, learning and practice, and life in general provide the missing link? We, therefore, invite scholarly and robust contributions from different disciplines and academic
