Newly Released Book Receives Praise
Lived Theology: New Perspectives on Method, Style, and Pedagogy contains the work of an emerging generation of theologians and scholars who pursue research, teaching, and writing as a form of public responsibility motivated by the conviction that theological ideas aspire in their inner logic toward social expression. Written as a two-year collaboration here at the Project on Lived Theology, this volume offers a series of illustrations and styles that distinguish Lived Theology in the broader conversation with other major approaches to the religious interpretation of embodied life.
Reading Religion, the newly launched book review site of the American Academy of Religion, recently reviewed the book, recognizing the work’s unique and valuable contribution to today’s theological inquiry:
“…this diverse work should prove engaging for any theologian interested in practices. It coheres through shared conviction that the lived realities of faith constitute a rich and primary focal point for theological inquiry. Together, the authors illustrate and explore this conviction well… Their diversity provides a broad and engaging introduction to the work of lived theology while gesturing toward a much larger conversation.”
