Theological Education and the Mission of the People of God in a Globalised World – David Smith

In this paper I want to reflect on the task of theological education, and more

specifically, training for mission, within the context of globalisation. Since the forces

driving economic globalisation are located in the so-called ‘developed’ world, and

since that world largely overlaps with what has been known as ‘Christendom’, I want

to explore the relationship between mission and the West, and to ask how, given this

linkage, we might restore the credibility of the missionary enterprise? The answer to

this question clearly has implications for missionary formation, or training.
