About-

What are the purposes and priorities that really govern a theological school? What are realistic expectations of theological education? What would be the ideal theological school, and what is theological about it? Theologian David Kelsey addresses these questions and other concerns regarding theological schooling, and offers suggestions on how to analyze and reconceive "theological schooling" in productive ways.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Kelsey's study offers both the best and fullest analysis to date of the major interpretations of theological education and an original proposal that argues that God is what theological education is all about. It deserves to be the major reference work for discussion of theological education."
--Edward Farley, Professor of Theology, The Divinity School, Vanderbilt University, Nashville

"This book provides a new map to see theological education, and Kelsey charts the territory that we all know in powerful and surprising new ways."
--Rebecca Chopp, Associate Professor of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta

"This may well be the best book yet on theological education. It is must reading for all persons in the theological schools and in the churches who care about the future of religious leadership in America."
--Joseph C. Hough Jr., Dean, The Divinity School, Vanderbilt University, Nashville
