First steps in practical theology
A new title, First steps in practical theology, has recently been released. This publication addresses the problem of the scientific base and methodology of this discipline. In accordance with the viewpoints of Zerfass, Firet, Van der Ven and others, the authors try to guide students to exercise practical theology from the perspective of empirical theology. This paper is an attempt to point out possible pitfalls in implementing this method of re search without theological reservations. It is an aim to modify students’ views in such a way as to overcome these dangers.
