Theofiction was developed to be used in school (citizenship education, religious education, ‘projectweek’), but it may be used elsewhere as well. Making a theofiction gives insight in one’s own philosophy and those of others and hence contributes in understanding ‘the other’. Making up a theofiction in a group has a surplus value over making a solo-theofiction because it requires communication and consensus about values and norms. Creating a theofiction together is a creative process and presenting it to others articulates the own views (shared by the group) again.
