Overview

The process of theological education has always been an exercise in learning the cultural setting of the Bible. A modern understanding of the course development and mentorship takes into account the culture of the student, the cultural values of the local community in which the school is found, and the importance of creating an identity-forming culture of Christ-centered learning and excellence. This collection presents readers with the necessity of thoughtful cross-cultural interaction in today’s interconnected global culture. With great care and appropriate depth, these volumes will provide guidance for those whose calling involves building up the church through higher education.

In a pluralistic world where graduates are ministering in greatly varying contexts and cultures, theological education has to be context-sensitive and relevant. It is no longer enough to ensure that students have mastered core theological concepts and truths, have biblical knowledge, and some basic ministry skills. The impact of a theological institution is measured by the effectiveness of their graduates in their specific ministry contexts.

Theological education is a vital aspect of Christian mission. The training of evangelical doctoral students in theological subject areas is therefore an important part of the mission of God. This handbook presents doctoral supervision as a task involving both academic and spiritual formation. Designed to be practical and relevant, and to encourage self-reflection at both individual and institutional levels, it combines theological foundations with educational theory, accompanied by questions, exercises and case studies to develop doctoral-level skills.

Understanding and Developing Theological Education

Historically education has been driven from behind—the history, and above—the educational institution. Traditions and adherence requirements have led to inflexible models of school leadership that are focused on administration and rife with educational politics. In contrast, today’s theological landscape needs institutions with a grassroots-driven educational system, looking to a future that is biblically and theologically grounded. This publication, an English translation from the original German focuses on the leadership and curriculum development required for such a paradigm shift. Written primarily for those in leadership roles at theological schools and training institutions, this handbook is an essential resource for equipping the next generation of leaders in theological education.

In addition to linguistic challenges, theology students with English as a second or foreign language face difficult concepts and different ways of thinking. In response, Exploring Parables in Luke aims to help such students more effectively engage with the literature of their field. As students work to interpret Jesus’ parables in light of his person and work, they will grow in both their English and theological proficiency.

For several decades concern has been expressed about the need for greater integration and contextual significance in the curricular design of theological education. In addition there has been a growing awareness of the role theological schools should play in strengthening the missional vision and practice of local churches.

Since 2008 the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary in Lebanon has been engaged in an ongoing experiment in the design and implementation of an integrated and contextually driven curriculum. Drawing on lessons learned from this experience, and from the wider discourse currently taking place in higher education, Transforming Theological Education provides theoretical foundations and practical principles for purposeful curriculum design, as well as tools for integrated and contextually significant learning in the classroom.

Perry Shaw EdD (Asia Graduate School of Theology Alliance), is professor of Christian education and acting academic dean at the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary in Beirut, Lebanon. Dr Shaw is a curriculum and faculty development consultant to regional schools and ministries throughout the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Europe, and Latin America, and is active in the missional theological education movement within the International Council for Evangelical Theological Education (ICETE), as well as being a keynote speaker at several Overseas Council Institutes.
