This volume represents the first major attempt to elaborate and engage the late James E. Loder's programmatic work in practical theology. Thirteen able scholars here explore how Loder's profound theological motif of bredemptive transformationb relates directly to issues of fundamental importance to contemporary church life. The first six essays examine core practices of the church, including baptism, communion, preaching, biblical interpretation, leadership, and youth ministry. The next five essays focus more broadly on the meaning and shape of practical theology to discern and to give order to the relation of divine action to human action revealed in Christ. The last three essays bring Loder's work into dialogue with philosophy and mystical theology. Also included are a Loder biography and bibliography. A fitting tribute to a remarkable scholar and human being, this volume initiates a dynamic new approach to practical theology that will continue for years to come.^Contributors: Marilyn McCord Adams^Eolene Boyd-MacMillan^Kenda Creasy Dean^Russell Haitch^Thomas John Hastings^Susanne Johnson^Margaret A.

-Publisher

Inspired scholars or pastors know that their vocational integrity largely depends upon the generative influence of significant thinkers whose work captured their imaginations and helped set the course of their spiritual and intellectual journeys. For the scholars responsible for "Redemptive Transformation in Practical Theology," the formative impact of James Edwin Loder, Jr. is undeniable. His 40 year effort to re-conceive fundamental practical theology as a science of divine-human inter-relations called a whole generation to discern for themselves the dynamic, Christomorphic contours of the Holy Spiritbs movement human-ward as the vital intelligible Reality of their lives and ministries. Sadly, much of conceptual profundity of Loderbs critical and confessional science remains relatively unknown and under-appreciated.
