DE BEER, Stephan F.. Faith-based agency and theological education: A failed opportunity?. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2019, vol.75, n.4, pp.1-13. ISSN 2072-8050.

After attending to shifts in the landscape of theological education at a public university in South Africa, this article explores the re-imagination of theological education as fostering faith-based agency. With reference to the (potential) role faith-based organisations play in response to developmental challenges in local communities, it then suggests a deliberate retrieval of faith-based sources - locatedness, voices, assets, agency and formation - in liberating theological education. It concludes with concrete curriculum recommendations for consideration.

Palabras clave : faith-based agency; theological education; praxis-methodology; socio-ecclesial assets; epistemologies of liberation.
