Practical Theology as a Practice of Hope: Reflections on a discipline that connects

Practical theology is meant to be a practice of hope that interacts and connects with the complexities of our life and world today. Starting from core theological convictions regarding hope, education, formation and research are practices that contribute to new wisdom. In order to do so, practical theologians work together with others in intradisciplinary communities and networks that connect to our present challenges.
