COMMENTS ON THE FUTURE OF THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION IN AFRICA

John S Pobee

Abstract


This article is based on a paper the author read in 1986 at a conference at the University of Ghana. This conference was convened by the West African Association of Theological Institutions and Programme on Theological Education of the World Council of Churches.

The article deals with a wide range of issues, from the practical (such as staff, money and logistical matters), to the theological. The key concept is that theology is not a matter of knowledge, but also of wisdom. Special attention is also drawn to Africa’s need to reflect more closely on the plural character of its society, and it is suggested that ‘inclusiveness’ ought to be a fundamental guiding principle.
