I’d like to thank Lifeway/B&H Publishing Group for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Being a Seminary Student, books about Theological education are extremely interestingly to me. Being a nerd, any books on these subjects fascinate me. Thats why I was so excited to dive into “Theology, Church, and Ministry.”
This book is a compilation, edited by David Dockery, and has an impressive cast of professors and scholars. I’m usually not a huge fan of compilations. They tend to be hit or miss, with some excellent chapters and some, well, not so much. Honestly, this book falls in that category. Some chapters were great, and others were meh. I tend to not like compilations as much because there’s no cohesive line of thought. Anyways, this book did have some very helpful information. Each chapter is devoted to a different topic that is covered in theological education. It surveys the main points of it, and examines its importance and relevance today.
This book was pretty good. I’m sure I’ll refer back to it throughout my education to gain perspective on the topics that I’m studying. Seminary students and professors could benefit from this book.
