After greater than two decades because the fall of the USSR, the evangelical flow in post-Soviet society has entered an important section in its historic improvement. commencing a transformative imaginative and prescient of challenge and theological schooling, this booklet makes an immense contribution in the direction of the renewal of the church during this fascinating--but deeply troubled--part of the realm. After the violent and disruptive occasions that the Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity and Freedom in 2013/14, the evangelical stream in post-Soviet society now has an exceptional chance to turn into a shining instance of a "church with out walls."

It explores serious problems with identification, undertaking goal, and of theological studying as a way of transformation of post-communist realities. I commend this richly textured paintings to teachers and scholars-practitioners looking to comprehend the project of theological schooling in instances of momentous transition."

A so much well timed word."
