Christian colleges and seminaries have not been immune from the cultural influences shaping contemporary education. Challenging the conventional wisdom advanced by the educational debate during the last fifteen years, Robert Banks builds an innovative new model of theological education based on how ministry formation took place in biblical times. Banks takes full account of key issues raised by our current educational context and shows how a "missional model" of education is more holistic, inclusive, and practical than recent versions.

    This has to be the most sadly overlooked book on the shape of theological education out there. Banks engages with all the key influencers in this discussion and pushes beyond what has been offered toward a truly missional model of theological education. More could be said about how his proposals relate to a missional ecclesiology - something he references, but doesn't really discuss at length. On one hand, I have a tremendous wish that those currently involved in the world of theological educati This has to be the most sadly overlooked book on the shape of theological education out there. Banks engages with all the key influencers in this discussion and pushes beyond what has been offered toward a truly missional model of theological education. More could be said about how his proposals relate to a missional ecclesiology - something he references, but doesn't really discuss at length. On one hand, I have a tremendous wish that those currently involved in the world of theological education would take Banks' radical (at least from the perspective of the status quo) suggestions seriously enough to make substantive changes. But, on the other hand, as Banks himself mentions toward the end of the book, change will more than likely come, not from institutions at the center of the given system, but from grassroots experiments and movements from the margins. Perhaps what I appreciate most about Banks' perspective and work is that he's no mere pragmatist, suggesting changes to the structure of theological education based on external factors (though he is certainly aware of these). Instead, he addresses the topic of theological education from missiological and theological perspectives. If you are at all interested in the topic and/or practice of theological education, this book is one of the best you'll come across.

    I was surprised at the detail of reflection on models of theological education and the implications. Reflecting on mission and action of theological education, the historical premises, modern adaptations and a future perspective. Still Banks seems to be insecure in contemplating on "future" practical and missional models for theological education as aided mission of the church and missio Dei. This is interesting to observe since twenty years after this book was published then proposed models are I was surprised at the detail of reflection on models of theological education and the implications. Reflecting on mission and action of theological education, the historical premises, modern adaptations and a future perspective. Still Banks seems to be insecure in contemplating on "future" practical and missional models for theological education as aided mission of the church and missio Dei. This is interesting to observe since twenty years after this book was published then proposed models are already lived out.

    I like the way Banks helps us reflect and see the heart in Christian education. The part with 5 points on areas that is essential for a good transformation in the believers.
