Publisher's Description


Qualitative Research in Theological Education brings together a diverse group of scholars to consider the theological values arising from and contributing to their use of qualitative research in scholarship and teaching. The book offers a careful consideration of the pedagogical and administrative challenges involved in teaching qualitative research and its various sub-disciplines such as ethnography. As a whole, the book argues that the teaching of QR methods is critical to the theological, ethical, spiritual, and/or pastoral formation of ministers and theological scholars

With contributions from Jody Clarke, David M. Csinos, Elaine Graham, Brett C. Hoover, Tone Stangeland Kaufman, Bernardine Ketelaars, Boyung Lee, Dawn Llewellyn, David M. Mellott, Nichole Renée Phillips, Apipa Prachyapruit, Anthony G. Reddie, Siroj Sorajjakool, Todd D. Whitmore, and Natalie Wigg-Stevenson.

Author Bio

Mary Clark Moschella is Roger J. Squire Professor of Pastoral Care and Counseling at Yale University School of Divinity, is the author or editor of three books and numerous articles in the area of pastoral research, including the widely used volume, Ethnography as a Pastoral Practice: An Introduction. She is also the author of Caring for Joy: Narrative, Theology, and Practice. Susan Willhauck, Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology at Atlantic School of Theology, conducts QR and has published in the areas of Christian education and leadership in ministry, including "Ministry Unplugged: Uncommon Calls to Serve" (2010) and "Breaking the Stained Glass Ceiling" (2013). She initiated and directed a research project funded by the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion entitled, "Teaching Qualitative Research in Theological Education to Enhance Leadership for Change in the Church".

Editorial Reviews

"Ethnography breaks conventional boundaries of library research, but what are its implications for teaching? This stellar collection tackles this important question and reveals the power of fieldwork to form and even transform us. With contributions by expert scholars from diverse disciplines, institutions, and countries, this book is an indispensable handbook on ethnography, showing not only how to navigate its pitfalls but also how to reap its benefits of radical hospitality and even political activism."
"These explorations into the deeply important role of qualitative research in the shaping of academic theology and ministers are clearly a gift to the theological world and the pastoral world. "Qualitative Research in Theological Education" provides insights into diverse geographic contexts and a variety of religious and non-religious practices through attention to embodied contextual realities. A crucial contribution is attention to how such research can and should be understood as truly "theological" as opposed to simply quantitative or qualitative."
Moschella and Willhauck bring together deeply insightful essays "voiced" by experienced practical theologians from around the world who are highly skilled, reflective teachers and researchers. The essays provide a remarkable resource for equipping theological students across masters and doctoral programs to experience the transformative possibilities of qualitative research to disclose new understanding of self and culture and reveal more deeply the wisdom and challenges of their co-researchers whose contexts the students seek to understand. This collection sets a new highwater mark in our resources for teaching and practicing qualitative research.

This is an inspiring collection of essays that powerfully testify to the huge significance qualitative research has assumed within theological education. The authors show how close, patient and attentive engagement with our contexts and communities is strengthened and disciplined by a critical awareness of contemporary research methodologies. Ecclesial, ethical, political and pastoral practice are thus enhanced and the theological imagination itself is enlivened and transformed. An exciting and engaging work.
"Forming religious leaders must mean forming people who can engage in practices of deep listening that decenter arm-chair suppositions and uncover new pathways to action. This book provides a valuable - and practical -- introduction to how ethnographic learning is an increasingly vital part of theological education. I've already recommended it to my colleagues!"
"This is the right book at the right time for advancing students of theology and for qualitative researchers in theological education. Moschella and Willhauck are exemplars of the qualitative turn in theology, and the assembled contributors make for a vibrant conversation on the state of this theological art."
