Vision and Discernment: An Orientation in Theological Study

Wood, Charles M. Vision and Discernment: An Orientation in Theological Study. Atlanta: Scholars Press, 1985.
Abstract: 

Wood defines theological education as "the cultivation of theological judgment" which requires the capacity for critical inquiry through dialectical movement between vision (seeing the big picture) and discernment (seeing distinctions and differences). He proposes three "new" theological "disciplines" (or reflective practices) which seek to ascertain the authenticity (historical theology), truthfulness (philosophical theology) and necessary contextuality (practical theology) of Christian witness.
