Transformed Ministry

Description

Contemporary seminary training by evangelicals has never been conducted at such a sophisticated information level as today. Nor have the future teachers of God’s Word been more academically qualified to convey information. Yet the experience of many who have passed through seminary training is that both the institution and the pedagogical method seemed to militate against growing the head and the heart together and the latter often suffers. Is the trend towards "spiritual formation" as a distinct subject in the syllabus of many colleges a sign that there is an evangelical institutional endorsement of the dichotomy between the head and heart? Or should all teaching aim to transform?
