Summary: This introduction to the field of practical theology reclaims a theological vision for the life and work of the church. Pete Ward dispels the myth that practical theology is a distraction from the "real" tasks of ministry or from serious academic theological work. He argues that practical theology is part of the everyday life of the church and that there are a variety of possible approaches, helping readers evaluate the approach that is most appropriate to their ministerial context and theological tradition. This reliable, accessible resource will work well for those in training or in ministry. https://www.amazon.com/Introducing-Practical-Theology-Mission-Ministry/dp/080109819X/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=9780801098192&qid=1573521865&sr=8-1
