Call for better theological education worldwide

Its about time. I'm reminded that the Archbishop of York after visiting the House of Bishops meeting in 2006 said he was shocked at the lack of theological sophistication.

"He (Rowan) told reporters: “It seems to me that a lot of the religious conflicts we see around the world are intensified by ignorance and prejudiced by the incapacity to get inside the skin both of your own tradition and of others. “Education is a part of making religion a resource for peace rather than a menace, so I would see this as absolutely key to that task.”"
