God’s Exemplary Graduates: Character-Oriented Graduate Attributes in Theological Education by P G Bolt & P Laughlin (eds.)



As a fruit of the 2019 SCD Learning and Teaching Conference, the essays within this volume ably demonstrate the heart, soul and passion that theological educators have for forming students within their care to be God’s Exemplary Graduates. The many suggestions and reflections within will no doubt prove helpful to current faculty and teaching practitioners but, it is hoped, they will also prepare the way for further discussion and experimentation around the formation of graduates into the future.
