Product Description

While many pastoral ministry books focus on the practical duties of the pastor, few works actually consider how theological truth defines the pastor's role and responsibilities. Pastoral Theology constructs a theological framework for pastoral ministry that is biblically derived, historically informed, doctrinally sound, missionally engaged, and contextually relevant. Through careful theological integration they formulate a ministry philosophy that defines the pastoral office and determines its corresponding responsibilities in light of theological truth.

Authors Daniel Akin and R. Scott Pace provide a theological understanding of the pastorate that will equip aspiring pastors to discern and pursue their calling, challenge younger pastors to build on ministerial truth instead of ministerial trends, and inspire seasoned pastors to be reinvigorated in their passion for Christ and his church.

Editorial Reviews

"[T]his diverse work should prove engaging for any theologian interested in practices. It coheres through shared conviction that the lived realities of faith constitute a rich and primary focal point for theological inquiry. Together, the authors illustrate and explore this conviction well. I sensed an implicit camaraderie in their loosely united contributions. Their diversity provides a broad and engaging introduction to the work of lived theology while gesturing toward a much larger conversation."--Reading Religion

"Lived Theology is a book that is more than the sum of its parts. It is more because under the insightful direction of Charles Marsh, Peter Slade, and Sarah Azaransky these essays offer a theological alternative we have so desperately needed. In the very least, this book should end the unhappy tension between academic and popular theology." --Stanley Hauerwas, author of The Work of Theology

"Lived Theology is essential reading for students, activists, pastors, and scholars who are attentive to present and future opportunities for theological engagement and witness in the public square. These essays establish the importance of lived theology as a rationale and methodology for analysis of the primary source data of social change, such as field reports, position papers and oral histories, in order to discover vital theological conversations, convictions and commitments." --Cheryl J. Sanders, author of Saints in Exile

"Lived theology has been among the most vivifying and necessary scholarly movements of the last decade and a half. In illustrating how to read the texts of people's lives for clues about God, this book inspires, tempts, informs, and provokes." --Lauren F. Winner, Associate Professor of Christian Spirituality at Duke Divinity School
