:In this addition to the acclaimed The Church and Postmodern Culture series, skilled theologian Christian Scharen examines the relationship between theology and its social context. He engages with leading postmodern thinker and social theorist Pierre Bourdieu to offer helpful theoretical and theological grounding to those who want to reflect critically on the faith and practice of the church, particularly for those undertaking ministry internships or fieldwork assignments. As Scharen helps a wide array of readers to understand the social context of doing theology, he articulates a vision for the church's involvement with what God is doing in the world and provides concrete examples of churches living out God's mission.
