Public Theology Resources

with Ted Peters

Public theology is conceived in the church, critically reasoned in the academy, and offered to the wider culture for the sake of the global common good.

More specifically, some loci within public systematic theology can be illuminative outside the church for making public policy. Public systematic theology is not narrowly apologetic. Rather, it gifts public discourse with discourse clarification plus worldview construction that leads all of us toward a global common good.
