Book Description

20 Jan 2006
Now a classic textbook, Practical Theology in Action offers a basic introduction for all those involved in pastoral care and in applying Christian thinking to the service of the Church and society. Using everyday stories and case histories the authors explore pastoral situations and reflect on them theologically. This new edition has been extensively revised to take into account the changes of the past ten years. The first part of the book (The Foundations) looks at the theory of practical theology, and models for its application. The second part covers tools for practical theology; learning from experience, interdisciplinary working, theological reflection, action and spirituality; and to this has been added new material about mission in context today.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 22 Jun 2013
By Mr. C. Bleakney VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
I thought when I ordered this book that I would be given material that accurately reflected the title of this book. This for me would have been interesting because of the vital link between faith and works.
What I actually got was a complicated look at Practical Theology combined with the editors need to prove that there is such a practice as Practical Theology, so much so that one cannot see the wood for the trees.
This is such a vital subject for today's Church and demands not more dry Theology but a devotional and practical approach.
Disappointing!
