Developing a Public Faith: New Directions in Practical Theology

Overview

This collection of fifteen essays honors James Fowler, the best-known voice on faith development. Each essay explores faith development theory with a particular interest in extending Fowler's most original idea: Fowler's broad and encompassing attention to the four mutually influential tasks of practical theology has mirrored new understandings of the field of the last few decades.
