About the Author:

Dorothy C. Bass is director emerita of the Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People in Faith.

Review:

David F. Ford
— University of Cambridge
"Dorothy Bass and Craig Dykstra have been key shapers of practical theology for many years. Now they have gathered around them an outstanding team and together distilled into one book the essentials of the field. It is good theology and good practice, alert to the main intellectual, educational, pastoral, and institutional questions. The book sparkles with fresh ideas and imaginative ways of forming people and communities in line with God's purposes." Virgilio Elizondo
— University of Notre Dame
"This very creative and marvelous collection of stimulating, enlightening essays in practical theology responds to the gap between pastoral ministry in the field and theological education in the academy. It is a great contribution to the church — its faithful, its ministers, and, most of all, its scholars." Christian Century
"These boundary-crossing writers' broad dreams are bold and refreshing."

Expository Times
“Worthwhile reading for those who spend themselves in the pursuit of equipping others for pastoral ministry.”
 
Theology
“This book stands out from the crowd.”
 
Theological Studies
“Well-documented, readable, and engaging.”
 
Journal of Religious Leadership
“The book offers indispensable resources for the North American church and academy.”
