The SCM Studyguide to Theological Reflection fills a gap in the market by providing an accessible guide to the subject for all who embark on it for the first time. The book offers newcomers a step by step introduction to understanding what theological reflection is and helps them to explore which of the methods introduced best suits them and their particular situation. It is practical in emphasis, providing students with a wide variety of worked examples and opportunities to carry out their own exercises.Providing students with examples of reflective practice in other areas of life and other professions, such as healthcare, helps to clarify and explain the practice of theological ways of reflection, as bringing to bear on everyday practical decisions of ministry, the resources of one's own Christian faith and understanding. This title moves on from definitions and methods for developing one's own model of practice with a shift in focus from using Theological Reflection as a model for pastoral practice to placing it in the wider context of the arts and the wider world.
