This is the first in a two part project, aimed at postgraduates and academics interested in the expanding volume of work and research surrounding theological reflection. Brought together in Volume one is a comprehensive collection of models of theological reflection. By bringing this diverse collection together in one place, the editors create a unique reference work that allows a clear and visible contrast and comparison as each model is treated formally and in a standard format. Throughout each chapter the distinguishing features of the model are examined, the geneology and origins are discussed, worked examples of the model applied to contemporary theology are provided, and critical commentary, future trends and exercises and questions are provided. The second volume is a Reader providing access to the primary texts referenced throughout this work and will publish in 2006.
