Immink’s work sharply formulates some fundamental questions for practical theology, among which questions in relation to the knowledge of God, especially from the perspective of ‘classical reformation theology’. From this perspective Immink evaluates hermeneutics within practical theology negatively, because it is does not satisfy the epistemological criteria of ‘external realism’. The author counters this criticism from three different issues referring to the interaction between subject and object in knowledge, the criteria of correspondence and coherence of knowledge, and the fallibility in knowledge, and asks the question to what extent ‘classical reformation theology’ is still relevant for churches in modern society.
