A commitment to reconstruction and development poses serious challenges to theological education in Africa. This article addresses some key issues of curriculum design for a Theology and Development programme. It does so around three headings: the politics behind the design, the preferences within the design, and the praxis throughout the design. Drawing on experiences in the Theology and Development Programme at the School of Theology, Pietermaritzburg, it raises questions rather than provide answers.
