The author has made a study on James William Fowler who is the father and pioneer of the faith development theory and his name has become synonymous with theory of faith development. He has identified six stages of faith-growth extending well to the life span of the human person from infancy to adulthood. This study makes a thorough research into Fowler’s concept of faith and its development, through a careful analysis of the basic sources of the theory, from the theological sources of Richard H. Niebuhr and Paul Tillich and from the psychological sources of the theories of Erik Erikson, Daniel Levinson, and the cognitive structural developmental theories of Jean Piaget and Lawrence Kohlberg and from the sources from comparative religion from the theory of Wilfred Cantwell Smith. The author also presents the developmental stage theory of religious judgment of Friz Oser and applies the contributions of the theory of faith development to faith education.
