A practical, healing theology

A recent article in Christian Century magazine offers a wide-ranging commentary and overview of a significant new work on Christian theology. According to the article, this new book, A Fundamental Practical Theology by Don S. Browning, has as its "central purpose ... to show that all authentic Christian theology is governed by practical interests."

Furthermore, as the Christian Century article argues, "Theology begins and ends in the collective practice of living communities of faith—communities which seek clarity about their mission in the context of the contemporary world." The article also makes the point that it is the basic "practical concerns" of people that finally move them in the direction of responding to compelling theological issues through "proposals that foster more faithful and effective Christian living."
