Theology Today
"This is an important book for theological education. . . Banks consistently calls for missional awareness and commitment from those who are responsible for shaping theological education. This is a book of new vision, full of hope for the task of theological education, for the mission of the church, and for the development of leaders for that mission."
"Banks enters the debate on contemporary theological education with a comprehensive and refreshingly practical call to a missional model for theological education. He strives to root this model in a greater appreciation for biblical perspectives on formation for ministry. . . Banks provides an extensive review of historical and contemporary issues and models of theological education. His review is critical, and while his missional model is ambitious, he does not avoid facing the practical consequences and challenges faced by those who would move toward what he considers a more authentic approach to the formation of persons called to theological education as teachers and students."
Evangelical Review of Theology
"A profound challenge to seminary 'business as usual.' Far from a simple three-step program of remediation, Banks calls for a total reenvisioning of theological education. . . This is a serious piece of scholarship."
