The Aims & Purposes of Theological Education: A Study Guide

During the two decades since 1980, the theological schools of North America have pursued a reappraisal of their fundamental aims and purposes.

During the two decades since 1980, the theological schools of North America have pursued a reappraisal of their fundamental aims and purposes. The literature arising from this discussion has not only expanded our knowledge but also raised important questions for faculty, students, clergy, and all those who are concerned for the highest possible quality of ministerial leadership and theological scholarship. This study guide, by W. Clark Gilpin, is an invitation to explore that literature and the basic issues that it has raised. Gilpin is the Margaret E. Burton professor of the History of Christianity and of Theology at the University of Chicago Divinity School and Director of the Martin Marty Center.
