Postcolonial theologies have engaged biblical studies, and to a lesser extent Christian doctrinal reflection, but have had very little impact on practical theology or institutions that train public ministers. This chapter examines the intersecting curricula of seminaries and their often opaque ideas of formation, suggesting agendas will emerge from postcolonial perspectives.
