Endorsements

“Dorothy Bass and Craig Dykstra have been key shapers of practical theology for many years. Now they have gathered around them an outstanding team and together distilled into one book the essentials of the field.

The book sparkles with fresh ideas and imaginative ways of forming people and communities in line with God’s purposes.” -David F. Ford, University of Cambridge

“This very creative and marvelous collection of stimulating, enlightening essays in practical theology responds to the gap between pastoral ministry in the field and theological education in the academy. It is a great contribution to the church---its faithful, its ministers, and, most of all, its scholars.” -Virgilio Elizondo, University of Notre Dame
