Theological Education via Plato’s Allegory of the Cave

Abstract: 
In the books and articles on the aims and purposes of theological education, William Carl finds administrators, professors, trustees, pastors and educational specialists all feeling their way toward some elusive but edifying truth about what Ed Farley calls Theologia while at the same time bumping around in the dim light in search of better ways to train pastors and educators for ministry in the twenty-first century church. In his essay, he invites you to do some “pedagogical spelunking” as you explore together where theological education is heading these days, and what some of the best minds think about it.
