Item description for Crisis in the Church: The Plight of Theological Education by John Haddon Leith...

Overview
John H. Leith gives a passionate and informed interpretation of the state of theological education in the United States. Fifty years ago, he writes, it was necessary to gain freedom for the study of the faith. Over the course of five decades, he asserts, freedom "for" the faith became freedom "from" the faith. Leith is Pemberton Professor of Theology Emeritus at Union Theological Seminary in Virginia.

Publishers Description

Drawing on his wealth of experience as both a seminary professor and minister, John Leith identifies and confronts the contemporary crisis in theological education. He argues that the crisis in the seminaries is interwoven with the crisis in the church, and that the secularization of educational institutions has led seminaries to move away from their primary responsibility--preparing pastors for ministry.
