Endorsements & Reviews
“Ian Hussey and Andrew Bain have performed a great service in commissioning and collecting a series of essays about theological education. While concerned with the nuances of the Australian context, it also addresses matters that will interest theological educators all over the world. Along the way, Asian perspectives and the role of women are ably considered.”
—Michael F. Bird, Lecturer in Theology, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia
“In a global context of innovation Theological Education gives a holistic, missional, and field oriented voice from Australia. While keeping an eye on the past, these essays look decidedly to the future, with theoretical reflections and practical suggestions that are readily transferable to the work of contemporary leadership training across the world.”
—Perry Shaw, Professor of Education, Arab Baptist Theological Seminary
