Description

More and more seminaries, Bible colleges, and Christian universities are opting to train future ministers and missionaries online—and yet, the factors that have driven this choice have typically been pragmatic and financial. What the movement toward online ministry training has lacked is a theological foundation. As a result, practices of online ministry training have been shaped in most institutions by a hodgepodge of institutional pressures and secular learning theories.   This book asks and answers the question, “How might online ministry training look different if biblical and theological foundations were placed first?” Teaching the World: Foundations for Online Theological Education brings together educators from a wide range of backgrounds and from some of the largest providers of online theological education in the world. Together, they present a revolutionary new approach to online theological education, highly practical and yet thoroughly shaped by Scripture and theology.
