Catholic voices on practical theology

practical theoA book launch event will mark the publication of Invitation to Practical Theology: Catholic Voices and Visions (2014, Paulist Press), a collection of essays which promises to advance the conversation around practical theology, especially in Catholic circles. Boston College faculty members M. Shawn Copeland, Roberto Goizueta, Colleen Griffith and Thomas Groome are all contributors to the volume. The formal discipline of practical theology developed largely in Protestant contexts and has recently garnered increasing attention among Catholic academics. The Boston College event  will be held Oct. 22 at 4:00 p.m. at 9 Lake Street and will feature presentations by Goizueta, Griffith and Groome, moderated by editor Claire Wolfteich.  Co-sponsored by the School of Theology and Ministry.
