Description - Christian Practical Wisdom by Dorothy C. Bass

Why is the very kind of knowledge that people need to live well - practical wisdom - often the least understood, the hardest to learn, and the most devalued kind of knowledge? In this book five distinguished practical theologians examine the wisdom that is basic for faithful Christian living, question why it has been largely devalued, and advocate for its renewal. After first showing several concrete situations in which this kind of wisdom is visible - marriage, church, community, culture, and more - the authors then delve into the reasons for the decline of practical wisdom and set forth constructive cases for its renewal through biblical imagination and spiritual practice.
