Description

Assessment of the impact of theological education has always been a challenge. 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. Therefore the theological curriculum has to be connected with the contexts of the graduates. Theological institutions need to be clear as to what they hope to accomplish and this will determine the model of theological training that they use. This book explores various models of theological education, as well as identifying steps in the logical sequence of connecting curriculum with context.

Review quote

Rupen Das in this small book brilliantly unpacks the idea that theological education must be rooted in place. It calls us to take context seriously so that rigorous re ection emerging out of praxis can occur. This is a must read for twenty- rst-century theological institutions across the globe. Gary V. Nelson President Tyndale University College & Seminary, Canada Rupen Das has deep understanding and extensive experience in organizational processes and theological training. In this book, he has done what few people have the requisite background to do - to bring clarity to the thinking about, and the practice of, theological training by using the process and evaluative tools of Results Based Management. This is a unique and very helpful contribution to theological training. All theological educators who read this book will wish it had been available to them much earlier. Fong Choon Sam Dean of Academic Studies Baptist Theological Seminary, Singapore
