Pete Ward argues that to make sense of the contemporary nature of the Church we must understand the way that encounter with God is mediated by cultural expression. Through participation in expression the contemporary Church is both a lived-in 'culture' while it is also 'in-dwelt' by the Trinitarian God. He offers a theoretical approach to practical theology which will be of use to practitioners rather than merely to other practical theologians.
'This book is going to punch open a hole for a lot of good work to follow i think. pete is opening up all sorts of possibilities for dialogue around lived faith in culture and what is going on with lived faith in worship, mission, denominations, using cutural texts and so on. i really recommend it...'
