This article gives an overview of (Christian) Theological Education (CTE) in Malawi. To place the discussion in its appropriate context, information about Malawi is given including the impact of Christianity on the country. The article then describes historical aspects of CTE and highlights some of its inherent shortcomings, before shifting to more recent developments and justifying why Malawi still needs CTE. Next, attention is given to the two main ‘routes’ in CTE provision. Finally, ‘new’ theologies that have emerged in CTE in Malawi are identified and described.
