Theology in Practice extends the horizons of practical theology. It promises to enrich the intellectual discourse and supply material of interest to academic professionals and graduate students. It will feature developments in the theories of practice, experience, culture, and action that define the discipline, while also attending to the close study of lived faith. Its authors will range from senior scholars presenting mature research to young scholars pursuing promising fresh avenues. The series is also open to edited volumes on emerging topics. Its audiences will be practical theologians and other interested scholars in established and emerging geographical, institutional, and religious contexts.
Theology in Practice aims to explore and reconstruct the centers and margins of practical theological discourse. The series will be marked by interdisciplinary conversations with related fields, such as feminist, liberation, or systematic/constructive theologies, while also exploring new domains, such as comparative/interreligious, sexual, postcolonial, post-Christian, and critical racial-ethnic studies. Concerned with ministry and religious leadership, it will address multiple expressions of Christianity, fostering the development of cognate research in other religions and in secular formations that take practice, action, and performance as central concerns.
