Revitalizing Practice is designed to help theological faculties engage a common set of challenges, particularly in the areas of diversity, formation, and institutional identity. These are not technical problems but are instead the very stuff out of which teaching and learning are practiced. Yet addressing such issues requires intentional strategies and collaborative work. Revitalizing Practice offers four such intentional strategies: "A New Ecology Model", "An Improvisational Model", "An Appreciative Inquiry Model", and "A World Cafe Model". Each of these models provides a thorough and practical framework (based on sound theoretical concepts) designed to help faculties revitalize their practices of theological teaching and learning.

(Martha Horne, President and Dean Emerita, Virginia Theological Seminary)
"... a cluster of catalytic models that cause one to think differently, to expand and refine vision, and to intentionally design better strategies to achieve mutually agreed upon goals. A very worthwhile read." (Leland V. Eliason, Executive Director and Provost, Bethel Seminary of Bethel University)
