By the Renewing of Your Minds : Pastoral Function of Christian Doctrine
Through close readings of a number of classic texts, the author develops the thesis that Christian theology is thoroughly shaped by pastoral and moral purposes. Charry's hope is to show contemporary theologians how to teach the faith in a morally constructive fashion, transcending the current destructive opposition between "academic" and "pastoral" theology. The book is intended for scholars and students of Christian theology.

"A significant contribution to both academic and pastoral theology, and might go a long way toward healing the breach between the two."--Bruce D. Marshall, St. Olaf College
