This article discusses the place of practical theology in theological education. It suggests that practical theology has the power to integrate the fragmented task of theological education by its learning centred holistic approach if it is defined correctly. The author takes us through various approaches to practical theology, including the problem based action oriented approach, the reflective hermeneutical approach, the critical correlation research approach and shows how a practical theology mindset can transform the way we think about and do theological education.
