Publisher's Description

The pastoral ministry is in danger of losing its focus, say the authors of this perceptive and timely study.  Specialization in preaching, counseling, evangelism, administration, and education has diffused the impact of practical theology.  And because of competing ideas as to what now is central, the very image of ministry may be breaking down. Foundations for a Practical Theology of Ministry responds to the problem by introducing a specific method for doing practical theology which will be welcomed by concerned church leaders everywhere. Presenting a realistic, workable answer to those who call for a revival of this vital discipline, Drs. James N. Poling and Donald E. Miller propose that the unifying image for ministry becomes the formation of the community of faith.  After developing this as the most appropriate base for the practice of theology, they carefully outline their method and show how it will work by demonstrating its success in the actual experiences of typical congregations. For Christian leaders who seek to renew the integrity of ministry and restore the character of pastoral leadership, this significant book will provide a solid foundation.  And for individuals interested or involved in education for the future of the church, this important resource will prove invaluable.
