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 the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by a world-class set of research and study tools. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Theological schools are often led by teachers with minimal administrative experience or training. Excellence in Theological Education is designed to help leaders of theological schools, especially within the Majority World, to affirm the excellence of their own training institutions, and where excellence may be lacking, to discover ideas that will strengthen the quality of administration and education provision.

Steven A. Hardy is the international advisor for theological education for the missionary organization SIM and the senior consultant for the International council for Evangelical Theological Education (ICETE). He has three decades of experience as a theological educator in Ethiopia, Mozambique, South Africa, and Brazil.

This book is a substantive and diverse tapestry, so vitally important and critical to the future of creative, God-blessed theological education. This volume on curriculum design has been crafted by a gifted and global team of thoughtful educators. I have dedicated much of my life to study educational systems and processes and resources, students and leadership, all contributing to authentic character transformation and godly excellence in ministry preparation. I can only dream of the potential impact of this series of books. Worldwide, all theological education forms and structures encounter rough waters - whether internal or external. These turbulent currents will permanently shape them, but those that resist it will wither, merge or die. Those who embrace change have a unique opportunity to impact the kingdom of God in Christ as they design creative curricula to equip the people of God for ministry at all educational levels and in all vocations. My prayer is that our courageous educators, especially those in its highest leadership, will be bold enough to read, study and implement the wisdom in this foundational resource.

The Motif of Hospitality in Theological Education: A critical Appraisal with Implications for Application in Theological Education

  • Author: Davina Hui Leng Soh
  • Series: International Council for Evangelical Theological Education (ICETE)

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

These are exciting times in theological education as old models are being reassessed and teachers and schools are looking for guidance on how best to do the job and how to profitably relate to students in the ministry of teaching. Increasingly, the motif of hospitality is being used to guide our thinking and practice, but it needs a careful assessment if it is to be of maximum use to theological education today.

This book provides an integrated biblical, theological, and educational rationale to inform theological educators of the place of hospitality in enhancing their quest to create more effective learning environments for the holistic formation of students. Dr Davina Soh explores key elements of hospitality such as inclusion, presence, care, and reciprocity, which when combined, can deliver the best possible educational experience for theological students and transform an entire institution.

The work could not have come at a more appropriate time when many theological institutions, especially in the Majority World, are seeking to play catch-up with the West, and in their relentless pursuit of academic excellence, are encountering the same danger of ending up as soulless institutions.

Towards Vital Wholeness in Theological Education: Framing Areas for Assessment

God's interest in the entirety of our existence and the details of his creation is quite rightly lauded by professing Christians, including those involved in theological education. But what impact does this biblical truth have on the way in which theological education is conducted?

Critics are increasingly bringing attention to the shortcomings of theological education in this regard. In this thorough examination of the issue of holistic practices throughout the operations of theological institutions, Dr Jessy Jaison provides sage and actionable solutions where others have merely observed systemic weaknesses. Jaison has applied her expertise and experience of twenty-five years in theological education in India to dissect the issues, diagnose the symptoms and prescribe a way forward that will lead to stronger leaders practicing healthier ministry in God's Kingdom for those who have ears to hear.

God's truth is holistic impacting all aspects of his creation. So also is his will and agenda for his world. Therefore his ministers in the world should be trained holistically through an integrated program in a wholesome community. That is the challenge that is posed before us in this masterful work by one of India's most innovative theological teachers.

Transitioning from a Theological College to a Christian University: A Multi-Case Study in the East African Context

The decision for ministerial training institutions to become broader educational institutions that offer courses outside the traditional areas of theology is certainly not unique to a specific geographical context. While there are many examples of notable institutions making this transition in North America and Europe, very little reflection has been carried out in the global south.

In this book, Dr Semeon Mulatu looks to institutions in Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo that have completed or embarked upon the journey to university status. The study explores the motivations of educational leaders in pursuing such a transition, as well as the impact it has had or will have on the continued theological education and Christian mission of the institution. Here you will find answers to key questions such as:

  • What is lost and gained by a seminary becoming a university?
  • What are the challenges along the road?
  • Is it all worth it in the end?
A timely and relevant resource to guide numerous institutions into an informed engagement of this exciting, challenging and enriching process of transitioning to university status.
