Abstract: 

Kelsey argues that the central purpose of a theological school is to understand God more truly, that Christian traditions intersect with the Greek idea of education as paideia and the much later German idea of education as wissenschaft to create the models of theological schooling operative today, and that the issues facing theological education arise because of the conflicting understandings of the world and God embodied in these ideas. He proposes reconceptualizing ways of thinking about theological education based on the desire to understand God more truly and to do so in the concrete particularities of faith communities. (KA)
