Emerging Issues and Theological Education

Chopp, Rebecca S. "Emerging Issues and Theological Education," Theological Education 26 (Spring 1990): 106-124.

Arguing for an understanding of theological discourse in the broad social reality of which it is a part, Chopp suggests a return to rhetoric and poetics in education -- a reinvigoration of the imagination (which she opposes to modern modes of knowing). Education must emphasize the ability to envision, to produce the aesthetic images and metaphors that fund knowledge, values, and community in the church and in the world. (RG)
