International students in North American seminaries struggling with academic work in English … Seminary students around the world finding resource materials that are still only available in English … Regional seminaries in Asia, Africa, and Europe educating people from many language backgrounds by offering instruction in English … These and other factors are the primary reasons for this volume.
Trends in the field of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) have led to specialized English and pedagogy for areas such as business, engineering, hospitality, and so on. The time has come to acknowledge English for Bible and Theology, along with specialized program design, materials, and instruction.
English Language Teaching in Theological Contexts explores various models for assisting seminary and Bible college students in learning English while also engaging in their theological coursework.
