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.

Challenging Tradition: Innovation in Advanced Theological Education

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

The surge of theological education in the rapidly growing Majority World church has highlighted the inadequacy of traditional Western methods of thinking and learning to fully accomplish the task at hand. Challenging Tradition: Innovation in Advanced Theological Studies highlights the need for these traditions to be reconsidered in every context throughout the world. Shaw and Dharamraj, with their team of contributors, present innovations in research and documentation that demonstrate how we may better prepare theological leadership through means that are contextually relevant and locally meaningful.

Challenging Tradition: Innovation in Advanced Theological Education is a rich collection of the work of twenty-three global theological scholars, who share about their own life and experience serving in theological education in the Majority World for many years. Theological educators and church leaders committed to develop disciples of Jesus Christ, who are able to serve effectively in theological education institutions and churches in their own contexts, will benefit with this valuable resource.

Character and Virtue in Theological Education: An Academic Epistolary Novel

  • Author: Marvin Oxenham
  • Series: International Council for Evangelical Theological Education (ICETE)

  • Pages: 414

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

Dr. Marvin Oxenham expertly uses the genre of the epistolary novel to help the reader understand the nature of character and virtue education and their relationship to theological education. He draws on a vast array of disciplines, from educational philosophy and political science to theology and andragogy, in this winsome story that explores how global theological education can better contribute to the formation of virtuous students.

Character and Virtue in Theological Education by Marvin Oxenham is a breath of fresh air in theological education for our generation. The mission and vision of theological education was the formation of those who obeyed the call of the Lord for ministry and mission. This was through academic excellence, character, and spiritual formation. Today we have an overemphasis on academics with only lip service given to character and spiritual formation. This book brings us back to the centrality of character and virtue. Without this re-envisioning we are headed for fossilization. Look at Paul as he deals with Timothy and Titus. In ministry, what matters is who they are in Christ, while the study of God’s word is for all followers of Christ. The Bible is the transforming Word and it is the need of the hour if theological education is to impact the church to be salt and light. A must-read for all theological educators if we want to see impact and not status quo.

At the 2015 ICETE triennial international consultation institutional leaders from a diverse global background presented journeys of research in their own contexts in relation to theological education. These reports make up the chapters of this volume and provide new insights to actual ministry needs in society as well as how changes have been boldly made to educate students to minister in Christ’s name in a relevant way.

The generous sharing of these theological education institutions and various leaders involved in curriculum revision has opened our eyes to see the importance of sensitivity, openness, innovation, and collaborative efforts in bringing the needed changes.

Faculty development is at the heart of theological education. This book lays the foundation for institutions to equip, train and release emerging academic leaders to advance their careers and improve the standards of their teaching and research. The contributors to this volume share the findings of research conducted at evangelical academic institutions in various contexts around the world so other senior administrators can enhance the quality of theological education at their own institution.

I look forward to seeing theological schools and training programs renewed as faculty develop through the processes outlined in this volume. May the Lord transform us, so we can transform others.

This book brings together theological insight and educational research in support of practical methods that align with transformative ends. The authors’ experience with Global Associates for Transformational Education workshops, testifies that this is not a mere call for change, but a tested methodology crucial to theological education.

Ministry Education That Transforms is much more than a manifesto on theological education. It is the fruit of reflection of theological educators with experience in different cultures and of their practice across cultures. It is an invitation to remember that the call of theological education is transformation, fostering the appropriation of God’s truth to shape the worldview, character and practice of seminary students and of the church. This book is a must-read for those who view education not as training, but as formation, and want to learn more about transformational perspectives and methods.
