About-

Cultural and ethnic diversity is the reality of our world, and much more so in this age of heightened globalization. Yet, do our ways of doing theological education match with our current reality and hopes for a colorful and just tomorrow? How shall we do theological formation so it helps give birth to a culturally diverse, racially just, and hospitable world? This edited volume gathers the voices of minoritized scholars and their white allies in the profession in response to the above questions. More particularly, this volume gathers the responses of these scholars to the questions: What is the plight of theological education? Who are the teachers? Who are our students? What shall we teach? How shall we teach? How shall we form and lead theological institutions?

It is the hope of this volume to contribute to the making of theological education that is hospitably just to difference/s and welcoming of our diverse population, which is our only viable future. When we embody this vision in our daily educational practices, particularly in the training of our future religious leaders, we may help usher in a new, colorful, and just world.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This book is an excellent set of essays describing the effects of racism and marginalization, from faculty who teach at the apex of theological education and racial realities. Thoughtful, personal, evocative, and not satisfied with the present forms of teaching that perpetuate a narrow tradition of Eurocentrism, the authors are able to offer imaginative and practical suggestions for the classroom and for how the whole enterprise of theological education is structured. A must read for any current educator within the field."
--Nadine S. Pence, Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion, Indiana

"In this groundbreaking book, racial and ethnic minority teachers in theological education, and their white allies, discuss changes in pedagogy, curriculum, institutional life, and governance necessary to advance the cause of racial justice and cultural diversity. I recommend this exciting volume enthusiastically."
--Kwok Pui-lan, Episcopal Divinity School, Massachusetts

"This is a wonderful resource for teaching and learning in the twenty-first century. Rather than retreating from the dilemmas faced when confronting institutionalized racism in theological contexts, these authors lean into the challenges and offer a broad and deep array of pertinent frames of analysis with correspondingly pragmatic responses. There is much bread for the journey here and an invitation into a community of hope. Every school in the ATS should be reading and learning from this book."
--Mary E. Hess, Luther Seminary, Minnesota
