Abstract

This paper is about the possibility of educating teachers to become more deeply theological. Here, the author draws upon literature in both theological studies and currculum studies. Moreover, the author draws upon on the ground experience as a trauma chaplain in a large hospital and experience as a university professor in a large university. There are many similarities between the work of the hospital chaplain and the work of the university professor. Although religious studies has been dealt with in the past in the field of curriculum studies, little or no work has been done on comparing chaplaincy to the work of teaching.
