(p.173) 11 Advice for Analytic Theologians
Christian Philosophy

Trent Dougherty

Oxford University Press

Extending the model of Alvin Plantinga’s “Advice to Christian Philosophers,” in this chapter, Trent Dougherty offers his own “advice” to those working in the emerging field of analytic theology. Through a series of specific suggestions regarding the best practices of analytic theology, Dougherty describes some of the Christian’s community-specific projects that stand in need of attention, and then issues a call to Christians—of all stations of academic rank—to attend to these problems. Partly an exercise in “practical theology” itself, this chapter seeks to be sensitive to the real-world problems connected to how students of analytic theology find themselves situated.
