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. 248 pages, softcover, Eerdmans.

The work of thirteen first-rate theologians from several cultural and Christian perspectives, these informed and informative essays explore the relationship between Christian theology and practice in the daily lives of believers, in the ministry of Christian communities, and as a needed focus within Christian education.
