In A Prelude to Practical Theology, Jeanne Stevenson-Moessner takes a new route to introduce seminary students and others to the field of practical theology. Although she is certainly aware of relatively recent efforts to show the academic credentials of practical theology through careful definition (citing that of David Tracy), analysis of components, and linkages to other disciplines within and without the over all framework of theology, she proceeds by means of a double analogy, rather than abstract academic precision, to illumine practical theology. Actual case studies also helpfully illumine aspects of her work. From the Foreword by James N. Lapsley.

The book examines biblical foundations, historical roots, and current manifestations of social justice ministry. Also included are how practical theology addresses issues of racism, sexism, violence, anti-Semitism, ecological imbalance, and people who live at the margins of society--the vexing issues of today's ministry.
