The author proposes a new way of teaching Reformed Theology, in particular the teaching of systematic theology. He proposes a viable integration between theology and life, between its content and its context, and this the author calls “Theology as Wisdom.” The book proposes itself as a challenge for the need to correct the current curricula in theological education and, at the same time, as a key toward the construction of new educational projects. The book initiates its quest from the theological locus of defining theology as a reflection that occurs within the faith community —a reflection about the original and present character of this faith in relation to the general community of human beings, within the missio Dei in the world. The author provides a perspective for building a viable curriculum that relates the sources of the Christian tradition to the dynamics of present day society with its needs and challenges, and by doing so also to contribute to bridging the gaps between different approaches and traditions of Christian communities and theologians. Silas B. Dias makes clear that Christian Theology is above all wisdom from God and that the encounter between this concept and Christian education offers an evident enrichment to the task of theological education. The gracious fact of this enterprise is to understand Jesus Christ as docta fidei, docta caritas, and docta spes (Wisdom of Faith, Love and Hope). He is the Wisdom of God that is available to us so that the theological task may turn into a living enterprise.
