Contextualisation, Globalisation and Theological Education

In our discussion of the influences on a theological education college or programme, one of the four main influences was context. The word most used for summing up all the various aspects of context is that of “culture”. The study of cultural or social anthropology since the 1960s has deeply affected mission, is re-working the issue of theology and has helped us to understand the role of the context in the founding of church and the way in which it has diversified the churches. We are now beginning to understand the rich role of culture in theological education, just as it is beginning to disappear with the onward march of globalisation.
