Formatted Abstract/Summary
The essay flows out of the findings of the Transforming Theology project which researched theological higher education in Australia. Several key questions emerged as warranting more intensive examination if theological graduates are to be produced who will competently and convincingly engage the contemporary world in the mission of the church. Serious questions of pedagogical philosophy, theological content, and methods of learning and teaching all pointed to the need for a re-evaluation of how theological curriculum should be constructed 10 achieve the goal of integrated contemporary and future graduates. In addressing these questions, this paper confronts some entrenched traditional thinking in ways that seek to preserve the inherent values of current theological learning and at the same time to enhance that learning to make it more personally grounded in a graduate and thereby more effectual in vocational and societal expressions.
