Full text not available from this repository.


This short book aims ‘to clarify questions we are asking about theological education and ministerial formation in the UCA’.

It does indeed go a long way to asking better questions. The writing is lucid and Thompson is particularly effective in unpacking what can easily become impenetrable theological concepts. Stressing the ‘performative’ vocation of theology, the text engages the critical categories of post-colonial, post-liberal, post-secular and ultimately post-Christendom age/s. Not all with be persuaded by all the arguments but readers are sure to find a stimulus to reflect more deeply and more carefully on the nature of future ministry in the UCA.
