Theological Education – an Introduction to the Ideas

Probably the most useful definition is “Theological Education is the training of men and women to know and serve God”. It is distinguished from Christian Education in that it is usually done in preparation for special service or leadership in the Christian church or mission. Christian Education is generally seen as for all and takes place generally in the church. Theological Education is not for all, usually results in special service and leadership and usually takes place in a college or in a Theological Education programme centred beyond the church. Sunday School teaching, Bible study evening meetings and so on are Christian Education. Bible Colleges, Ministry Training Colleges, TEE and Seminaries are Theological Education.

    Two authors are mentioned only by last name, Pluddemann and Gunton. What are their full names and the resources that the article references?

    Wonderful read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.
