    Pastoral Theology: Integrating Theory and Practice

    Pastoral Theology: Integrating Theory and Practice

    Dr. Bulzacchelli and Dr. Smith discuss "pastoral theology".

    Can pastoral theology be intellectually rigorous?

    What distinguishes "pastoral theology" from speculative theology and other subdisciplines in theology?

    Is there a danger of too sharply dichotomizing between these two theological projects?

    How does pastoral theology overlap with non-theological disciplines, like sociology, psychology, economics, cultural studies, and so on?

    What does the landscape of pastoral theology look like today? What are the biggest issues for effectively ministering to the Church, and spreading the Gospel, in our time and culture?
