Studying Theology: Between Exploration and Commitment-Researching Spiritual Development of Higher Education Students of Theology
Erwich, René
International Journal of Christianity & Education, v22 n3 p214-232 Nov 2018
This article presents the results of research in the area of spiritual development of students of theology as part of their more general personal and professional life. Based on the qualitative analysis of written spiritual autobiographies, patterns and characteristics were discovered and are presented here. After presenting the outcome of the project, results are connected to a major theoretical perspective of Marcia's (1966) identity statuses and its revisions. Finally, it is contended that theological curricula should invest more in spiritual guidance and formation of students, and some suggestions are given in order to achieve this goal.
