Contextual Theological Education In Africa As A Model For Missional Formation, Susan Murithi Jan 2014

Contextual Theological Education In Africa As A Model For Missional Formation, Susan Murithi

The Asbury Journal

This paper argues that teaching of contextual theological education in Africa can aid in missional formation of students, teachers, and their communities. Further, common African struggles are explored as a way of discovering how theological education can be used to address Africa’s unique situation. The paper further asserts that the only kind of education with the power to form humanity is the one that relates to them and addresses their unique situations, and answers their questions. To form missional Christians in Africa, we need contextual education in our training institutions.
