Spring Reading 2010 — Missional-Theological Education

Another couple classes I’m currently in this semester are History and Philosophy of Christian Education and Theological Education in Intercultural Contexts. For the former course, the main objective will be to create my own philosophy of Christian Education; for the latter, the objective will be to develop a Manifesto (both in theory and practice) for Renewal in Theological Education. Of course, the layout and design of each depend greatly upon one’s vision, goals, etc., as well as on the setting (formal/informal) for the intended education/discipleship. As for the supplementary lists below, I included those titles I already have on hand. In my hopeful and strategic view, these two classes can best be worked through as complementary rather than at odds with each other. Again, you are welcome to suggest additional books that may deepen and broaden my own research. Thanks!
