A Black Day for Theology in Sweden Follow-up

2
After reading my blogpost A Black Day for Theology in Sweden, Colin Hansen of Christianity Today contacted me because he wanted to do a follow-up article on the situation of our seminary and of theological education in general in Sweden. I and our principal Pekka Mellergård sent him comments and answers to his questions (although I was in the middle of three conferences). Hansen's article, "Seminaries in Peril. Government evaluation threatens training of Swedish pastors" has now been published (27/7) and is available in the Christianity Today online.

  2. Yes, Sweden certainly wants to control the education of every citizen--or resident alien, as the case may be--all to prevent the emergence of parallel societies (like Evangelical Christians?)
