Product description

This book proposes to bring together three elements for the benefit of those researching practice in ministry and mission: * how to design research that enables questions about practice to be answered in a theological framework. * how to address the methodological and epistemological issues that arise in relating empirical research to theology. * how to manage a piece of research as a project alongside other responsibilities.

Students in PT mostly rely on research methods books written for social science students which tend to assume that the student is young and full-time. This book will act as a companion to student and supervisor needing to bring all three elements listed above together.

Product Reviews

This is a warm, helpful and deeply practical book. Those already engaging in qualitative research as well as those just beginning their journey, will find much wisdom and guidance. An important contribution to a growing area for theological reflection. -- John Swinton

All those researching practice in ministry and mission, and all of us who supervise them, should be deeply grateful to Helen Cameron and Catherine Duce for this timely, clear, personal, and practical book which is indeed a 'companion'. This is a book rooted in real-world research and in the real-world problems of research students contending with real-world time-management problems. But it is not just a pragmatic 'cook-book'; it engages with the underlying issues raised by research in practical theology. I shall be recommending it without fail to all my Masters and doctoral students doing empirical research in practical theology- and to their supervisors. -- Zoe Bennett
