Learning about God: Theological education as formation for mission

Main Article Content

John Drane


This paper describes how current models of theological education frequently fail to meet the expectations of today’s students in terms of both information and formation: the way knowledge is conveyed by institutions is too often based on traditional academical methods rather than ones appropriate to the twenty-first century; and the process is too rarely accompanied by opportunities to grow in spiritual wisdom. The paper then goes on to offer one model of how a holistic approach to mission-oriented learning can take place.
