P 110 Taking Ordinary Theology Seriously

Where do we look for theology? Who does it, and who owns it? The authors argue that there is such a thing as “ordinary theology.” It exists outside the university and the theological college; nevertheless, it should be taken seriously.

This booklet includes an analysis of interview studies in which regular churchgoers reflect on their beliefs about the person and the power of Christ. Their views raise important issues for the pastoral and educational ministry of the church.
