Publisher's Description

"Straw for the Bricks" explores theological reflection as a tool for ministerial training and development. The book offers a new resource for theological conversation at the beginning of the 21st century: it breaks new ground in exploring how a model of conversation can be used to lay a foundation for learning which provides a new architecture for both academic curriculum and personal formation. The book offers a practical guide to good practice supported by the lived experience of educators from All Saints Centre for Mission and Ministry working across several disciplines. No other such detailed practical guide is currently in print.

The book will thus become an important resource for those within theological education institutions, adult theological educators; those with responsibility for continuing ministerial development, mentoring and discipleship; and any lay person who seeks to live a life of faith in conversation with culture and the Judaeo-Christian tradition.

Editorial Reviews


"This book is a useful contribution to the field of Practical Theology, informed by the authors' extensive experience of enabling people to engage with the transformative potential of theological reflection. It advocates for a conversational, four-source method and gives detailed guidance on how to use the model within the context of group reflections. Especially helpful are the discussions of how the method can inform biblical studies, preaching and reflective practice, and will be of relevance both for ministers-in-training and established ministerial practitioners."

This book is a banqueting table groaning with goodies. Like any good meal, or effective theological reflection, this is a rich shared experience, so pull up a chair. This will nourish practical theologians, preachers and teachers as we refine our various approaches. It will feed poets, enable facilitators of parish debate, and offer sustenance to all who seek God in the earth of the everyday. It offers dishes flavoured with thought, practicality and wisdom; a nourishing feast.
