Stimulating Reflection Aug 18, 2007
I found this book very helpful to reflect on issues in theological education as I am developing and leading a theological educational and leadership development program. The author addresses many important issues related and important in theological education. He gives much food for thought and some good suggestions. This is a must read for anyone involved in theological education, especially faculty and educational leaders.
