Abstract

The aim of this thesis is to identify the images of God of middle secondary school adolescents (14-17 years) and the influences shaping these images. It intends to compare and contrast the images of God of the participants, with those of Catholic theology; to explore the extent to which the findings about adolescents' images of God contained in this study, support or challenge those of a range of literature in the field of adolescent spirituality; to report on some of the formative factors that shape middle adolescents' images of God; and to propose implications for religious education arising from the findings and recommendations.
