About this Item

Scotland has long been known for its emphasis upon ?an educated clergy? yet little serious historical attention has been given to how this was actually fostered. This book provides a resource to this subject as it relates to the Church of Scotland and to the Seceders.Part One commences with a breif survey of Continental Reformed theological education and training before turning specifically to the Kirk in Scotland. The author has organised Kirk and theological education under six periods. Analyses of official documents, student memoirs, church court involvement, curriculum and professors are surveyed in each period noting significant developments with the result that the shape and contour of Kirk theological education and training are formulated.The Second Part of the book examines a long neglected area, the Seceders. The author leads the reader through an incredibly complex branch of the Scottish Church, with its myriad divisions. This part provides a mine of information and understanding of Scottish Dissenting Presbyterianism prior to the Disruption period.The smallest portion of the book, Part Three, proceeds to take this Scottish background and apply it to a case study of theological education in British North America, 1820â"1843. While the book does not purport to be a modern missiological study of a mother church's involvement in a mission field context, the missiologist cannot help but see modern pertinence.Although a thoroughly historical study in Scottish church history and historical theology, the book also serves as a springboard for reflection and application to the work of theological education today within the evangelical Presbyterian and Reformed community.
