CNCD 923 - Practical Theory in Context

3 credits
This course will examine the contexts, methods and purposes of practical theology which can be defined as theology “of the People, by the People, and for the People” of God. Through an examination of the recent cultural history of theology in America, an interpretation and criticism of Don Browning’s classic Fundamental Practical Theology, and an exploration of other recent models of practical theology (including the student’s own), participants will gain an understanding of the methodology. In class application of this methodology will help students shape and form projects that build-up “the people of God”. The students will employ theological and ministerial skills to identify a problem, analyze it, and, in conjunction with an increased awareness of his/her context, use these skills to imagine possible and justifiable solutions to problems of how to be the people of God in an increasingly problematic world.
