The Pluralistic Vision

Presbyterians And Mainstream Protestant Education And Leadership


This valuable book examines the results of research on theological education in the twentieth century, spiritual formation among seminarians, and the changing nature of Presbyterian-related colleges. Several essays review Christian education among Presbyterians, focusing on the forming of curricula for church schools, the use of scripture in Presbyterian curricula, and the publications from denominational presses. The book also includes profiles of denominational executives and a review of the emergence of women as denominational leaders and as ministers of congregations.
