The book presents a theological basis for theological education based on the Great Commission (Matt 28:18-20) within the context of Asia. The first part of the book asserts that theological education that is sound and biblical fulfills the purpose of the Great Commission by making disciples of all nations. The second part of the book considers the key text on discipleship in Matthew 16:24, emphasizing that suffering is an essential aspect of following Jesus. Discipleship and a theology of suffering must feature prominently in theological education. These crucial aspects of the Christian life are often missing in the teaching of pastors and churches today. Therefore, there is an urgent need in theological education to highlight and to remedy these deficiencies. The book also contains three appendices that are valuable for theological educators: a set of graduate attributes for theological students, a code of professional ethics for ministers, and a statement on spiritual abuse. The book provides invaluable reading for theological educators, church leaders, elders, pastors, and teachers.
