Two quotes on theological education

A couple of neat quotes from the introduction to To Teach, to Delight, and to Move: theological education in a post-christian world, edited by David Cunningham:

"Saint Augustine believed that the chief goals of Christian theology, like those of rhetoric, should be 'to teach, to delight, and to move.'" - p3

"The real curriculum of any educational institution is the conversation the students and faculty have amongst themselves." - p4

I like the way both quotes call us far beyond the mere impartation of facts and into the arena of relationship and formation of both the individual and the community.
