"Intellectually sophisticated, theologically sound, clinically wise, and eminently practical..." @britedivinity… https://t.co/qlZGocFVa3
Author(s): Helen Cameron, Catherine Duce
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.

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
