A ground-breaking contribution to current debates within Practical Theology and to thinking about its future.Professor Forrester argues that the boundaries of Practical Theology must be extended, and that it must be both seriously theological, and also engaged in sincere dialogue with other disciplines, the Church and society. He considers especially ministerial formation and Public Theology as areas where Practical Theology has an important contribution to make, and presents case studies looking at the practical implications of different approaches.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'For over two decades Professor Forrester has been at the heart of shaping practical theology at Edinburgh University. A number of passions have been central to his task: ecumenism, public theology, justice and poverty in Britain and overseas. These passions appear on almost every page of this splendid and challenging collection of studies. Here are the mature judgments of a theologian and churchperson who really cares.'
Professor Robin Gill, University of Kent at Canterbury
'The international ferment over the birth of a new practical theology will be greatly enriched by Truthful Action. We have needed a clear and forceful model of practical theology that is simultaneously confessional, ecclesial, and public - one that brings Barth and MacIntyre into the centre of the world practical theology discussion. Duncan Forrester's new book answers this need.'
Professor Don Browning, University of Chicago
