About-

This is book is a companion volume to the 2012 publication Transforming Theology Student Experience and Transformative Learning in Undergraduate Theological Education (Mosaic Press 2012). That work detailed the research undertaken across numerous higher educational providers of theological awards and its findings have spawned many subsequent explorations of the issues raised.

As a means of consolidating such impetus, the Sydney College of Divinity hosted a conference in 2013 to promote further scholarly thinking on the learning and teaching of theology. That conference has in turn engendered a number of essays by contemporary scholars and practitioners at the leading edge of Australian and New Zealand theological education, now gathered into this volume.

The purpose of this volume is to present some contemporary thinking and innovative practices in the field and so to encourage further such development within the theological community.
