AT 372 Theological Reflection as a Spiritual Discipline

from 600.00

The course re-envisions Theological Reflection by making connections to prayer and the ordinary spiritual lives of believers.  The idea of ordinary theology or operant theology lies at the heart of this shift in direction in Practical Theology.  Students will be introduced to ways of generating theological reflection through qualitative empirical methods.  The spiritual discipline of theological reflection is explored through an extended empirical case study of operant theology in personal prayer.

Peter Ward, Professor of Ecclesiology and Ethnography, St John’s College/Department of Theology and Religion, Durham University.
