Action research: a messy business -- Action research as a way of doing theology: is it an ART? -- Word café: opening up communicative space? -- The Bible transforms the preacher: let those with ears hear -- Looking the congregation in the eye: the naked preacher -- The visible preacher: finding a place to stand -- The unfinished story: continuing to negotiate the insider-outsider terrain.
Applying a methodology rooted in Action Research as way of Doing Theology (ART), and drawn from the author's own research within a specific 'community of practice', "The Naked Preacher" demonstrates for preachers and ministers new ways to be critically and constructively self-aware. It also offers an important contribution for practical theologians with an interest in action research and critical reflection.
