“This Companion has wide scope … and is surely the most definitive definition of what practical theology entails to date … An important addition to the shelves of those who teach practical theology or ministers as well as those engaged in the ministry themselves ... [It] offers a new way of seeing the subject, with sets of essays that are informative, novel, and take theology in new directions.” (Regent's Reviews, 2012)
“This edited collection is a showcase presenting how contemporary scholarship of practical theology has been developed into a wide concept of practical theology ... For those who are interested in teaching Christian theology from a practical theological perspective, this book will be a useful reference.” (Homiletic Journal, 2012)
“Miller-McLemore, a leader in the field, has edited an excellent handbook on Christian practical theology. Though the essays are short, they provide excellent overviews of the various topics and, more important, helpful bibliographies for students who wish to explore certain topics further … Libraries supporting curricula in Christian theology and ministry should acquire this good introduction to the field. It is essential for acquisition for seminary libraries ... Recommended: upper-level undergraduates and above.” (Choice, 2012)"This long-awaited volume is a tour de force, providing a comprehensive, critical survey of practical theology as it has matured in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. The authors are global leaders in the field, and the chapters reveal the stunning depth and complexity of the subject. It will provide an outstanding reference for practical theologians everywhere, and will serve as a critical source for courses in practical theology and for a wide and urgent intellectual conversation for many years to come."
—Mary Elizabeth Moore, Boston University
