Educating clergy: teaching practices and the pastoral imagination
"Educating Clergy" is the first book in a series of comparative studies by The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching that examines how the members of different professions are educated for their responsibilities in the communities they serve.
How do Jewish and Christian seminaries cultivate the pastoral, priestly, or rabbinic imagination that integrates knowledge and skill, moral integrity, and religious commitment in the roles, relationships, and responsibilities students will be assuming in clergy practice?
Based on extensive literary and field research involving surveys, classroom observations, and interviews with faculty, students, and administrators in Roman Catholic, mainline and evangelical Protestant, and Reform and Conservative Jewish seminaries, "Educating Clergy" explores the influence of their historic traditions and academic settings in contemporary classroom and communal pedagogies. The book describes elements in classroom pedagogies shared across these religious traditions that distinctively integrate the cognitive, practical, and normative apprenticeships to be found in all forms of professional education.
"Educating Clergy" identifies and examines, through case studies of seminary classroom and communal pedagogies, the wide range of pedagogic resources that inform the efforts of clergy educators to maintain the relationship between theory and practice, intellect and commitment.
