About-

Christianity and Education is a collection of papers published in Transformation: An International Journal of Holistic Mission Studies over a period of 15 years. It brings to life some of the papers that lay buried in shelves and in disparate volumes of Transformation, under a single volume for theological libraries, students and teachers. The articles here represent a spectrum of Christian thinking addressing issues of institutional development for theological education, theological studies in the context of global mission, contextually aware/informed education, and academies, which deliver such education, methodologies and personal reflections.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This is a remarkable collection of essays on theological education written from different contexts and perspectives and addressing a variety of important and relevant questions in the field such as institutional development, global mission, contextual awareness and methodologies. This book will be of tremendous resource for both academics and practitioners involved in theological education, especially for those who are searching for new and appropriate ways of doing theology today, for redefining the theological task of our generation."
Dr. Corneliu Constantineanu
President, Institutul Teologic Penticostal, Bucharest, Romania


"We have set before us a 'cruise liner', bound for southern seas. At a distance we are impressed by the elegance and grace. Once aboard we can be overwhelmed by her proportions, intimidated by the passages and multitude of venues and activities. Making my way to those sections and papers that I knew best, I then began to explore the challenging or unfamiliar. I commend this erudite, wide-ranging collection of papers on education in Theology, Missiology, and training for Christian service. I pray the book will stimulate the thinking of future students in their journeying, and help pastors, evangelists and teachers in building the international Body of Christ."
