In this book, theologians reflect on sociological methods, explore social theories of the human agent, and offer a theological transformation of sociology. Spanning such developments as local, non-stipendiary ministries, the identification of the roots of church growth, and giving voice to gay and lesbian Christians, this collection of innovative essays provides a fascinating and important dialogue on how the seemingly disparate fields of sociology and theology can illuminate and enrich one other.

This is essential reading for anyone concerned with the shifting dynamics of these two disciplines.

"(The collection of essays) shows how fruitful 'theology in dialogue' (the series title) can be in practice. It also provides a convincing riposte to those tempted to share John Milbank's over-presumption, in "Theology and Social Thought," that sociology has little or nothing to offer theology per se."
