The authors, though sympathetic to the schema proposed by the Liberation Theologists and sensitive to the demands of tradition, set themselves the task of outlining and defining a practical theology. They situate this theology squarely within the pluralistic tradition of North American reflection, rejecting Latin American and European models. They argue that practical theology is a distinct and limited genre grounded in the dialectic of theory and praxis, placing it in the arena of public discourse where religious and secular ideologies are debated, presenting their alternative visions of the future. Originally published in 1985 by Winston Press.
