Summary:Can ethnography open new possibilities for theology in the often unlikely places where we live our faith? This book breaks new ground by using reflexive ethnographic methods to get academic theologians and everyday Christians talking to each other about theology. Drawing on the author's research in the Baptist church where she served as a minister, the resulting "ethnographic theology" produces constructive theological insights and proposes creative alternatives for Christian thought and action. This text crosses multiple genres - from critical theological methods to experimental doctrinal theology, from creative non-fiction to reflexive spiritual autobiography - making a compelling read for academic theologians, laity and clergy alike. By rigorously outlining an ethnographic theological method and demonstrating that method's fruits with extensive constructive theological work in ecclesiology, social transformation, embodiment, sanctification, and more, Ethnographic Theology opens new possibilities for how contemporary theology can be done.
