Publisher's Description

This new volume in the SCM Research series argues that both preaching and Action Research are inherently exposing practices. They require a deep level of self-consciousness, and a willingness to hold oneself up to critique and comment. But at their best they are both formed within a deep and supportive critical community.

Applying a methodology rooted in Action Research as way of Doing Theology (ART), and drawn from the author's own research within a specific 'community of practice', "The Naked Preacher" demonstrates for preachers and ministers new ways to be critically and constructively self-aware. It also offers an important contribution for practical theologians with an interest in action research and critical reflection.

Author Bio

Rev Dr Jason Boyd is Minister of Witney Congregational Church, and a tutor in theology on the Congregational Federation Foundation Degree

Editorial Reviews

Jason Boyd has engaged in a radical examination of his preaching practice, not as mere upskilling but as rigorous and reflective theological inquiry. In doing so he has explored and reframed what it is to do theology in the practice of his preaching and, thereby, contribute to the field of practical theology...What is innovative about this work is how he has brought theological inquiry and action research together, not in an isolated or theoretical way only but in conversation with members of his congregation in the reality of his Sunday preaching. His creation and realisation of the notion of the Word Café is an innovative contribution to both fields.
