Occasionally seminary teachers are asked, "What does the seminary teach?" If the question relates to some article in our Mennonite Brethren confession of faith, the answer is simple enough, for all faculty members subscribe to that confession. On issues that lie farther on the periphery of the Christian faith, one would have to ask the individual teachers, for on such questions the faculty members may not always agree.

To give our Brotherhood a taste of the kind of things we teach, it was agreed that we should publish a volume of essays, written by seminary faculty members, under the motto: "Called to Teach." Twelve faculty members have contributed one chapter each to this volume.
