Abstract

This article argues that the emergence of digital literature in android-based applications such as NU Kids is a response to the contestation and fragmentation of religious authority in Indonesia as well as a medium to spread moderate Islam for children and an effort to build alternative religious authority and as a source for the formation of children's moderate identities. Through creative content, NU Kids provides education in the form of encyclopedias and fun games for children to get to know the history and practices of Nahdlatul Ulama. This article aims to explore the latest developments in moderate Islamic narratives in digital religious literature, especially in the segmentation of children. The results of this study indicate that the NU Kids application can be an alternative religious digital literature and a source of moderate religious identity formation for children.
