Poling, James N. and Donald E. Miller. "Foundations for a Practical Theology of Ministry," Theological Education 20, no.2 (Spring 1984): 14-41.

The authors present a chapter from their book of the same title in which they develop a typology of practical theology which revolves around two axes: 1) the critical method of bringing together interpretations of Christian traditions and the wider culture, and 2) the relationship between church and society. They describe six resulting types of practical theology. (RG)
