    Theological education is the formation of God’s people, both individual and collective, for participation in God’s mission of transformation of the world. For theological education to be relevant and authentic, and contribute to bringing change and transformation in the individual, in the church and in society it needs to maintain contextual sensitivity and integrity, and remain committed to the poorest of the poor, to faith, liberation, life and community. This article endorses this position drawing upon the Indian experience and its emphases in theological education.
