Scope and content
File consists of two draft typescripts entitled, "Spiritual Formation in Theological Education". In this article, Nouwen contends that the minister has to know his subject matter "by heart". He suggests that theological education does not include theological formation or formation of the heart. He suggests that ministers can be formed to ministry by Lectio Divina, by silence, and by spiritual direction - all in the service and context of community. Nouwen uses an analogy of the boy and the sculptor found in "Clowning in Rome" (1979).
