This new volume in the SCM Research series argues that both preaching and Action Research are inherently exposing practices. They require a deep level of self-consciousness, and a willingness to hold oneself up to critique and comment. But at their best they are both formed within a deep and supportive critical community.

Applying a methodology rooted in Action Research as way of Doing Theology (ART), and drawn from the author's own research within a specific 'community of practice', The Naked Preacher demonstrates for preachers and ministers new ways to be critically and constructively self-aware. It also offers an important contribution for practical theologians with an interest in action research and critical reflection.

Contents:

1.  Action research: a messy business

2.  Action research as a way of doing theology: is it an ART?

3 . Word Café: opening up communicative space?

4 . The Bible transforms the preacher: let those with ears hear

5 . Looking the congregation in the eye: the naked preacher

6. The visible preacher: finding a place to stand

7. The unfinished story: continuing to negotiate the insider–outsider terrain
