Abstract

The theological education debate in South Africa must be co-ordinated to make it meaningful for all parties involved. Factors influencing this debate are mentioned. Among these are obstacles in redefining African theology and relevant trends on an international and national level. The question of theological education cannot be dealt with in a credible way without reconsidering the nature of the university and the character of truth. Self-understanding in the theological profession challenges us to answer questions like theological integrity, the nature of a faculty for religion and theology, theological plurality and so on. The restructuring of curriculum necessitates revolutionary methods like the self-organising model of education to be considered. The article ends by looking at possible options open and action to be considered.
