The text discusses the possibility of the application of dialogue as a method of learning in theological education. As the author comes from a Protestant milieu, the focus of analysis will be on Protestant theological education in the Republic of Croatia, and more specifically, the use of dialogue as a method of learning at the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Osijek, which is the case study. To this end the author conducted a pilot study among the employees of the college and the results confirmed the use and effectiveness of dialogue as a method of teaching in theological education. The conclusions suggest that the dialogue model is based on the relationship between God and men, and within the triune nature of God Himself; that it leads toward joint action–fulfillment of the Kingdom on earth–by both man and God as partners; that it also impacts positively the students, easing the adoption of new knowledge, seeking their active involvement in the class by reflecting on their past experiences; and that it encourages independent critical thinking and the application of acquired knowledge in the context of society.
