Reviews - What do customers think about The Art of Theological Reflection?
a great disappointment Sep 8, 2007
This text reads like a theological version of a 70s pop psychology self-help book. With all of the richness that might have been explored, the text is trite and even a bit condescending. I was required to buy this for a grad course...and was shocked to find the vocabulary and the notions altogether fit for a junior high school exploration of the topic. Look elsewhere.
This book has provided an excellent foundation for students Jul 6, 1998
I have used The Art of Theological Reflection with both graduate and undergraduate students in theology seminars. It has provided them with a method for engaging theological questions and readings out of their own experience of life and of the Christian tradition - however extensive that experience might be. The authors give examples throughout the text that effectively clarify the porocess they are describing. They also make a convincing argument that theological reflection is not just for a few "initiated" but builds on a natural human quest for insight into the meaning of life experiences and for ways to integrate those insights into our lives.
