Publishers Description Amid the ongoing acceleration of cultural interaction that accompanies globalization, it is more important than ever that practical theology be freed from cultural bias and united in a common christological understanding.
In "Practical Theology and the One Body of Christ" Thomas John Hastings draws on decades of his own cross-cultural teaching and on current transformational models to develop a ???missional-ecumenical model??? of practical theology.
By studying in detail the life and ministry of first-generation Japanese Protestant pastor Tamura Naomi, Hastings generates a real-life example of the practicality of his original model and offers a more global, alternative perspective on the religious education movement than what is common in Western societies.
