    The theological review is very good. When you get to Christian Education and Missions, the practical value is almost non-existent. Still, I have given copies to many considering ministry studies. Hopefully future editions will include practical guidance as to mission practice and Christian Education Administration.

    I have been using this book to provide a seminary overview and regular training for all of our ministers in training. It has proven to be an excellent resource and has challenged all of us to continue to delve into the depths of materials available to equip us for this great calling. It has sparked a couple to actually consider seminary and removed "some" of the fear of such an academic undertaking.

    I have given this out as gifts for church members who have completed certification courses on the Bible or theology as a way to encourage them to consider seminary.

    It is also a nice reference tool for a seminary graduate's library as it provides a decent summary of what was taught wherever one happened to go to seminary.
