Via Paul Harvey, the first issue of Practical Matters is out and it looks seriosly interesting. From the introductory article:

The emergence of “practice” as a theoretical paradigm in a number of fields in the humani ties and social sciences has deeply affected religious studies.  In research and teaching, scholars increasingly focus on lived and popular religion, material culture, and religious life and lives “on the ground” in particular social and cultural contexts.  This interest has been matched by the resur gence since the 1970s and 1980s of conversations about “praxis” and “practical” theology—that is, a theology that responds to lived conditions and situations, and in turn shapes the way that com munities, institutions, and people live.

Drool.
