In a speech which CTU’s Steve Bevans made to the New Zealand Association of Theological Schools (July 15-17, 2004), Steve describes how and why the curriculum of CTU had been revised in the 2004-2005 academic years.



The segment of Steve’s presentation which caught my attention was his description of the student profile. More specifically, how students from the Third World were:

"…more cautious about (‘progressive’) contemporary western theological scholarship, particularly that which was suspicious of the church's tradition and magisterial authority; and many of our Third World students and younger ordination candidates were much less concerned with feminist issues, particularly the polarizing issue of woman’s ordination."

As Steve continued with his speech, it became clear that the new curriculum would address and ‘correct’ these ‘deficiencies’ of the student’s loyalty to the Church’s Tradition and magisterial authority which these Third World students and younger ordination candidates brought with them.

My personal experience reaffirms this action of reindoctrination is being taken.
