    • Abstract:
      Practical theology is the branch of Christian theology dealing with modern implications of Christian theological beliefs. It is often called Christian living, everyday Christianity, and pastoral care, among other terms. Practical theology involves considering what Christians and their leaders do and how it relates to God’s teachings. Christian education directors, students of pastoral ministry programs, missionaries, and others often focus on this area of study. In some ways, practical theology has been influenced by social sciences such as psychology and social work, as faith leaders have worked to address modern problems including addiction, mental health problems, and family dysfunction.
