Theological reflection is a distinct form of theologizing that has emerged over the last twenty-five years, explains Robert L. Kinast in the introduction to this WATSA book. Working out of specific contexts, theological reflection begins with lived experience, correlates this experience with the sources of Christian faith and aims at practical action.

Kinast examines five distinct styles of theological reflection: ministerial, spiritual wisdom, feminist, inculturation and practical theology. He analyzes each of these styles in terms of the type of experience it favors, the way it connects this experience to theology, and what sort of praxis it envisions.

The end result is a succinct overview of this wide-ranging and diverse approach to theology that will add to the knowledge and understanding of theologians, church personnel and students of theology.Robert L. Kinast
