restricted access Practical Theology: Challenges and Possibilities

This essay engages the content of The Wiley-Blackwell Companion of Practical Theology from three different perspectives. The first is through a reflection on the event "in front" of the text as a woman of faith doing practical theology in the very ordinary activity of reading the Companion; the second is through an examination of the text itself, which raises fascinating possibilities and challenges for the field and discipline; and the third perspective is through dialogue with one of the texts contributors, Jaco Dreyer, on the larger framework within which the "multiple multiplicity" of practical theology can continue to thrive.
