Christian Theology in Practice Discovering a DisciplineSeptember 25, 2018 By Collegeville Instititute Staff Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore Grand Rapids, Michigan, William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 2012 Visit this title on the publisher's website For the past fifty years, scholars in both pastoral and practical theology have attempted to recapture human religious experience and practice as essential sites for theological engagement — redefining in the process what theology is, how it is done, and who does it. In this book Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore shows how this trend in scholarship has led to an expanded subject matter, alternative ways of knowing, and richer terms for analysis in doing Christian theology. Tracing more than two decades of her own search for a more inclusive discipline — one that truly grapples with theology in the midst of life — Christian Theology in Practice shows not only where Miller-McLemore herself has traveled in the field but also how pastoral and practical theology has developed during this time. Looking forward, Miller-McLemore calls on the academy and Christian congregations to disrupt conventional theological boundaries and to acknowledge the multiplicity of shapes and places in which the “wisdom of God” appears.
