Product Description

This collection of essays presents the theological, pedagogical, and disciplinary framework on which multicultural theological education is built. While many seminaries and divinity schools have expressed their commitment to create diverse communities of faculty and students, fewer schools have developed methods of learning and teaching that are appropriate for these communities. Written by faculty members at McCormick Theological Seminary, a school renowned for its commitment to diversity, these essays provide examples of new ways of learning and teaching that will help shape and sustain multicultural theological education.

David V. Esterline is Dean of Faculty, Vice President of Academic Affairs, and James G. K. McClure Professor of Theological Education at McCormick Theological Seminary, Chicago.

Ogbu U. Kalu is Henry Winters Luce Professor of World Christianity and Mission, McCormick Theological Seminary, Chicago.
