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 in- form 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.

Review quote

Davina Soh's book is a "game changer" in evangelical theologies of higher education . . . it will have implications not only for how evangelicals are educated theologically, but will shape lifelong learners, ministers, missionaries, and servants with dispositions that will be inclusive of, vulnerable to, and reciprocal with the many different types of others in a radically pluralistic world. -Amos Yong, PhD Fuller Theological Seminary, USA 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. -Simon Chan, PhD Trinity Theological College, Singapore Soh's book is a comprehensive, deep, and useful investigation of the motif of hospitality as a marker and model for good theological education. -Graham Cheesman, PhD Queen's University Belfast, UK
