There is a subject heading and a class for Public theology. What is Public theology? Over against Political theology or Church and the world. What is it and what is it not?

My method has always been to look up the subject in the catalog and see if I can figure out what it means from the records there. If I can’t figure it out and I am lucky, there may be a contents note that helps me. So, I wound up finding in http://lccn.loc.gov/2010000121 a contents note: “Defining public theology. What is public theology? / E. Harold Breitenberg Jr. …”

Then I can look up the item in my collection. Or if I don’t have it and I am incredibly lucky this may be online as it is here: http://books.google.it/books?id=aChB4Hzwc0UC&lpg=PP1&pg=PA3#v=onepage&q&f=false
