Abstract: 
One of the issues that has long been obsessing the minds and spirits of deep-thinking believers is the relationship between religion in all of its aspects and scopes with models of reason and rationality. There are diverse approaches to the relationship between the two areas. Adopting a given approach in the study of the relationship results in a totally different method of religious training, and also a different way of explicating religious issues. In this paper, we discussed two approaches: reason-centered and faith-centered approaches. Our main research question was: Should we adopt a reason-centered or faithcentered approach to explicate the religious training? If educational system adopts a reasoncentered approach to teach religion, what kind of rationality should be raised? And if it is faith-centered, what kind of faith should be considered? To answer these questions, we have elaborated on reason-centeredness and faith-centeredness; analyzed types of rationality and faith-centeredness; and discussed the suitable rationality and faithcenteredness for the religious training through educational system.
