This article proposes the city as an opportunity and resource for liberating theological education. It explores going beyond adding "urban" to theological education as an addendum, but rather to consider "urbanizing" theological education as a whole, in an inclusive way that affirms the interconnectedness of urban-suburban-rural realities. It explores theological education that takes the whole of the urban and global reality, and its implications for local communities and people, seriously as its locus for theological reflection and action. It draws from the person and praxis of Klippies Kritzinger as a metaphor for a spirituality of theological education that is open to the potential liberating effects of the city.
