Product description


Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Theologian Jennings (The Christian Imagination) delivers a searing critique of Western Christian divinity school training and higher education overall. . . . In the tradition of bell hooks and Paulo Freire, Jennings's insightful indictment of the church and university will be an ideal choice for group discussion."

"An exquisite expression of faith seeking understanding, After Whiteness: An Education in Belonging is a gripping testimony to the life art of attending. When the academy is not a home, but your skin, paying attention requires everything. A fearlessly candid diagnosis of the failures of the theological academy--its soul-killing cultivation of the self-sufficient man builder--Jennings's poetic truth-telling nevertheless refuses cynicism's surrender. After Whiteness is relentlessly hopeful . . . an incisive indictment against a white aesthetic regime, while yet a joyful proclamation of education's wonder and holy desire for gathering . . . an intimate confession of fragility and fatigue, while bearing witness to the "rain" of divine presence that bodies may touch and taste. In his plea for religious imagination and the secret agents of 'fragment work, ' the always-inspired Willie James Jennings accomplishes an overturning that puts life-giving theos back into theological education. Divinity school deans and seminary presidents will declare After Whiteness a prerequisite for teaching and learning that aims to be spirit-filled."
-- Andrea C. White
Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York

Praise for the TEBT series:

"At once visionary and realistic, the books in this series offer fresh, short, and very different answers to the question, 'What is theological education for?' Studies of that question have appeared every couple of decades and seem to assume that 'one-size-fits-all' answers are possible. What's new and groundbreaking here is that a group of theological educators from a broad array of very different religious traditions address the question in conversation with one another and in light of the changing place of faith communities in contemporary culture."
-- David H. Kelsey
Yale Divinity School

"The authors of this series invite us into an exercise of the imagination--to let loose of the theological school models we know so well and instead craft ways that we teach and learn as if we are living in the new Jerusalem. This is daring work. Will we have the will to grasp it? I encourage you to read and see."
-- Emilie M. Townes
Vanderbilt University Divinity School

"I would be hard-pressed to name any other resource that even approaches this series in its visionary outlook and wide perspective on the challenges and opportunities currently facing theological education. The authors represent an unparalleled selection of leaders in theological education whose views and experiences point to different paths into the future, all leading to true excellence and relevance in theological education."
-- Justo L. González
author of The History of Theological Education

"At a time of massive changes in churches and theological schools, as well as in society generally, the twelve-book series Theological Education between the Times presents an indispensable resource. Many people, especially younger generations, question as never before the necessity of religious practice or even belonging to a congregation. In this new context, the repercussions for theological education are many: What adjustments must leaders make to maintain support? How can faculty modify programs to meet the demands of modern times? What message will attract prospective students? Astute theological educators from diverse backgrounds prayed together and engaged in conversations that contributed to the authorship of this lucid and compelling series intended for anyone concerned about the fate of religion in society."
-- Katarina Schuth, OSF
Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity
