TMST 8022 Seminar in Practical Theology (Spring: 3 )
Christian theology at its best is marked by the pastoral interest of serving the life of the church in the world. Necessarily, the study of the church;specifically, its nature, purpose, and mission provides a framework within which to consider the task of practical theology. The methodology and issues that distinguish practical theology flow from this larger ecclesial context. This seminar will focus on models of the church, the art of doing theology in service of the church, and some foundational themes of practical theology (e.g., hermeneutics, praxis, culture and inculturation, and our post-modern context).
