Theological Reflection, Theological Method, and the Practice of Education Ministry: Exploring the Wesleyan Quadrilateral and Stackhouse's Tetralectic

From: Volume 1NS, Issue 1: Spring 1997 Pages 49-64


This paper explores and critiques four models of theological reflection from an evangelical perspective. A modification of the "Wesleyan Quadrilateral" and John Stackhouse's "tetralectic" is then proposed, with Scripture, experience, tradition, and general revelation (social sciences, etc.) as primary sources of knowledge, with reason and the Holy Spirit contributing to the process of reflection.
