Advancing Practical Theology

Full Product Description

Advancing Practical Theology argues that the practical theology as a disciple does not at present fulfil its radical potential and addresses some directions that the discipline needs to take in order to respond adequately to changing social, ecclesial and global circumstances.

This book will generate debate as a polemic contending for a future of the discipline that features an enhanced role for the lay (i.e. non-professional) practical theologian who is radicalized with respect to the discipline's preferential option for the broken in which practical theology addresses and is addressed by postcolonial concerns. Eric Stoddart argues that it is time to shake the debate up, so that it does not only consist of discussions around the bible and practical theology, and the discipline's relationship with systematic theology, but to extend and grow the vision of what practical theology is and can be.

Eric Stoddart is Lecturer in Practical Theology and Distance Learning Officer as well as Associate Director of the Centre for the Study of Religion & Politics (CSRP) at St Mary's College, School of Divinity in the University of St Andrews.
