Description
Summary:This article draws from the insights of Andy Lord's Pentecostal network ecclesiology in order to explain the emergence of Bible institutes and the challenges in theological education. By examining the educational history of the Latin American Bible Institute (LABI), we find how the network paradigm enables us to understand why Bible institutes have fostered the success, growth, and education of Latinos/as. Lord's network paradigm is also applied to the problems of diversity and inclusion in theological education. This article aims to offer insights into how theological education can be renewed through ethnocultural networks and pedagogies of inclusion.
