Rapid growth of the church in Asia has translated directly into an exploding need for competent church leadership.  More than twenty years of ministry in that region of the world provoked and challenged author Bob Ferris to consider how theological education could be made more responsive to the needs of the church.

During his year as Missionary Scholar in Residence at the Billy Graham Center in Wheaton, Illinois, the author took the opportunity to visit ten schools around the world which had taken positive steps toward renewal of theological education.  From these case studies and his thoroughly-documented research, the author has developed a remarkable and sometimes surprising set of guidelines for implementing programs of renewal in existing theological education institutions.  All who are interested in developing effective servant leadership for the church will be challenged to think more creatively as a result of reading this volume.
