Cheryl Sanders, Howard Professor and Pastor, Praises PLT Publication Lived Theology

Cheryl Sanders, a PLT collaborator and dear friend to the project, recently shared a few kind words about our book Lived Theology: New Perspectives on Method, Style, and Pedagogy (Oxford University Press, 2016):

Lived Theology is essential reading for students, activists, pastors, and scholars who are attentive to present and future opportunities for theological engagement and witness in the public square. These essays establish the importance of lived theology as a rationale and methodology for analysis of the primary source data of social change, such as field reports, position papers and oral histories, in order to discover vital theological conversations, convictions, and commitments.” 

Sanders is a professor of Christian ethics at Howard University’s School of Divinity, where she teaches courses in Christian ethics, pastoral ethics, and African American spirituality. She also serves as senior pastor of the Third Street Church of God in Washington, D.C. She has participated in several PLT initiatives.

Thank you, Cheryl! We are thankful for the way in which this important volume about lived theology as an academic discipline continues to help shape theological curriculum in seminaries and graduate programs in the U.S. and beyond!
