Product Description

Earthen Vessels is a thoughtful, conversational essay illuminating the broad contours of theological education today. Rather than using a historical or analytic approach to discuss theological education in North America, Daniel Aleshire uses what he terms "appreciative inquiry" to identify the strengths of theological schools at their best.

Endorsements

“Daniel Aleshire knows more than anyone else about North American theological education. This highly engaging book, which distills his observations and insights, is essential reading for every seminary leader---trustee, administrator, or faculty member---and for friends and supporters of the enterprise as well.” -Barbara G. Wheeler, President of Auburn Theological Seminary

“A great argument swirls within and around America’s seminaries and theological schools---about their purpose, character, and value. For almost twenty years, Daniel Aleshire has been at the center of the turmoil, observing, interpreting, leading. In Earthen Vessels he distills what he has learned. In calm, measured, and hopeful tones he helps us see why these schools matter, what their challenges are, and what we must all do if we are to have the kinds of pastors and religious leaders we need.” -James P. Wind, President of the Alban Institute
