This book proposes to bring together three elements for the benefit of those researching practice in ministry and mission: * how to design research that enables questions about practice to be answered in a theological framework. * how to address the methodological and epistemological issues that arise in relating empirical research to theology. * how to manage a piece of research as a project alongside other responsibilities. Students in PT mostly rely on research methods books written for social science students which tend to assume that the student is young and full-time. This book will act as a companion to student and supervisor needing to bring all three elements listed above together.
