Item description for Transforming Practice: Pastoral Theology in an Age of Uncertainty by Professor Elaine L. Graham...
In an age where traditional values are facing a crisis and there is much uncertainty, what sources and norms may guide Christian action in the world? Do Christian truth-claims make any coherent sense amidst the confusing narratives of the public domain? The aim of this work is to reconstruct the values by which Christian praxis may be guided in a pluralistic and fragmented society, and to identify a model of pastoral theology in a postmodern age. The book argues that the proper focus of pastoral theology is not applied theology or the work of the ordained pastor, but the critical study of values of the purposeful practices of the faith community itself.
