Pluralising practical theology: international and multi-traditional challenges and opportunities

Abstract

This is an Accepted Manuscript of an article published by Taylor & Francis in Practical Theology on 23/02/2020, available online: http://www.tandfonline.com/10.1080/1756073X.2020.1728960The entrance of international practical theologians of all faiths and none into the traditionally Western-centric, Christian-dominated field in the UK prompts the review of its scope and methodology. This paper argues for a shared conversation on how to achieve constructive and authentic participation for all. A recent survey of alumni from four UK-based Professional Doctorates in Practical Theology highlights omissions and opportunities, and points towards an agenda for intentional and effective pluralization. Evangelical principles and Christian liberation theology suggest internal strategies to counter possible resistance to undoing the Christian hegemony
