Christian Identity and Theological Education

Hough, Joseph C., Jr. and John B. Cobb, Jr. Christian Identity and Theological Education. Atlanta: Scholars Press, 1985.

The authors argue that the core need in theological education is the clarification of Christian identity, defined as the internal history by which Christians live, because it is the basis for Christian practice in the contemporary global context. They argue that the primary mission of theological education is professional education for clergy, propose a new understanding of clergy as reflective practitioners and practical theologians, and outline a curriculum for clerical training.
