This timely look at the state of Christian higher education in America contains descriptive, historical narratives that explore how fourteen Christian colleges and universities are successfully integrating faith and learning on their campuses despite the challenges posed by the increasingly pluralistic nature of modern culture. Written by respected representatives from seven major faith traditions - Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, Mennonite, Evangelical, Wesleyan/Holiness, and Baptist/Restorationist - these narratives are also preceded by introductory essays that define the worldview and theological heritage of each given tradition and ask what that tradition can contribute to the task of higher education.

"In Earthen Vessels, Daniel Aleshire, executive director of the Association for Theological Schools, makes the case for the future of theological education in a personal and conversational essay. Rather than using a historical or analytic approach, Aleshire uses what he terms appreciative inquiry to identify the strengths of theological education and how they can support future work in the field. By describing this work and its far-reaching benefits, he aims to inform school board members, donors, administrators, and faculty who may be seeking to understand the bigger picture of their institutions. Aleshire organizes the book into three parts. The first makes the case for theological schools by describing the work they were intended to do and the contributions they make. The second focuses on the nature of their work - teaching, learning, and research. Finally the third describes the partners who make this work possible. Aleshire notes that much of the future of these schools will be framed by changes in these partners - administration, the church, and the higher education community - and the ways that schools change in response"--Amazon.com.

This provocative collection of essays addresses many issues of concern to the student affairs professional. While it covers subjects commonly associated with higher education and students affairs such as historical developments, educational programs, and the nature of learning, this book is distinctive because it examines these issues from a Christian perspective. By drawing connections between Christian faith and professional practice, the contributors enrich our understanding of how student affairs professionals conceive of and enact their work.

Spiritual growth is a mystery and is more evident in some than in others. The more the Holy Spirit shines upon the mind and puts forth His lifegiving influences in the heart, so much the more sin is seen, felt and loathed as the greatest of all evils. And this is an evidence of spiritual growth, namely, to hate sin as sin and to abhor it on account of its contrariety to the nature of God.

This Handbook of Theological Education in Africa is a fascinating witness to the explosive status quo of Theological Education. The historical and regional (inter alia) surveys open our eyes and ears to see and hear how fast it has taken root historically, geographically, and ecumenically. The landscape of African Theological Education has changed drastically during the final twenty to thirty years of the last century. There is very much to appreciate about it and what has been achieved. We have grounds to make us rejoice, and for which to thank the Lord. John Mbiti, Theologian and Philosopher, former Director of Bossey Ecumenical Institute The Handbook of Theological Education in Africa is unique, comprehensive and ambitious in its aim and scope. It is: truly interdenominationally oriented, bringing perspectives from all major Christian traditions on the African continent broad in geographical extension, collecting voices from all major regions of the vast African continent life-centered and ecological in orientation, as voices are brought together on an impressive number of new key themes and contextual challenges for theological education in Africa grounded in expertise, drawing on a pan-African unprecedented gathering of leading African theologians, men and women. We hope that this book, in its print and later digital versions, will make its way into the hands of African theological educators, will inspire students and will be a standard reference volume in all major African theological libraries, in both universities and church-related seminaries. Olav Fykse Tveit, WCC General Secretary The challenges of inclusiveness in African theological education are before us. The challenge to be ecumenical, meaning all Christians together; inclusiveness as serving a multi-religious continent with its islands is before ecumenical theological education. The challenges in terms of responding theologically to the issues that confront Africa - all of Africa - the religious, political, social, cultural issues and the challenges of people's spirituality and identity are to be on the radar of ecumenical theological education if theology is to be relevant in Africa. This Handbook of Theological Education in Africa has something for everybody. Mercy Oduyoye, Director of Institute of Women in Religion and Culture in Accra, Ghana This Handbook of Theological Education in Africa is a wake-up call for African churches to give proper prominence to theological education institutions and their programmes which serve them. We congratulate the editorial team for their magnificent work in bringing this Handbook together. This is a timely gift of the Church in Africa to the worldwide Church and will serve many generations of African theologians to come. Andre Karamaga, AACC General Secretary"

Frustration runs high for many a Sunday school superintendent and Christian education committee burdened with the task of finding "the perfect curriculum." No matter how well-defined the qualities of the "ideal curriculum," the reality is that, unfortunately, it probably doesn't exist! According to Christian educator Nancy Ferguson, the good news is that it is possible to provide curriculum materials that are consistent with a congregation's understanding of what it means to be a Christian and how Christian faith is formed. Two ways exist to accomplish that goal: use clear guidelines to evaluate purchased curriculum resources and write curriculum resources that are in harmony with a congregation's priorities. With the Christian Educator's Guide to Evaluating and Developing Curriculum, educators will learn how to: Articulate the goal and purpose of your congregation's educational ministry; Identify the six key elements of your Christian education program; Use the six key elements to evaluate purchased curriculum resources; Develop a scope and sequence for writing your own resources; Write session plans that are in agreement with your six key elements; Equip writers to develop session plans consistent with your educational purpose; Train teachers to use the curriculum materials; Evaluate the curriculum resources you have written. Reproducible worksheets throughout make this a highly practical resource for Christian education committees and teaching workshops. - Publisher.
