From the Publisher

No useful atlas would ignore where people live - nor should spiritual road maps. In a time when academic theology often neglects the actual customs of Christian communities, Practicing Theology seeks to bridge that gap.

Edited by Miroslav Volf and Dorothy Bass, informative essays by 13 first-rate theologians from diverse traditions explore the relationship between Christian theology and practice in the daily lives, ministry, and education of believers.
