Pastoral Care and Counseling has changed radically since the publication of the Dictionary of Pastoral Care and Counseling. Rapid changes have occurred in theological, social, and medical contexts broadening the understanding of care. The shift from the "living human document" to the "living human web" both enriches and challenges the study and practice of pastoral theology. Just as The Dictionary of Pastoral Care and Counseling defined the field of Pastoral Care, this volume brings the field current.

In this, his latest work, respected scholar Andrew Lester discusses and incorporates the newest behavioral research models, contemporary biblical and theological scholarship, constructivist philosophy, and narrative theory into a comprehensive pastoral theology of anger.

Divided into five parts, The Angry Christian explores the problem with anger, then turns to understanding anger, developing a pastoral theology of anger, discussing the ethics of anger, and finally suggesting strategies for counseling angry people.

In revisiting through the lens of theological anthropology the very subject that brought him to the forefront of scholarship in pastoral care, Lester presents engaging new material and innovative new methods of interventions for dealing with this often-confusing human emotion. Chapters include: "Anger: One of the Seven Deadly Sins?" "The Recovery of Emotion," "The Anger of God and Jesus," "A Pastoral Theology of Anger," "Handling Anger Creatively," and "Pastoral Care Interventions and Strategies."

Most pastoral counselors assume that truly effective counseling requires months or even years. Research suggests otherwise. Studies have provided two startling findings. First, most persons come in for four or fewer counseling sessions, whatever the counseling method employed. Second, the majority of any counseling's effectiveness occurs in the opening few sessions.

Part One uses brief pastoral counseling as a framework for detailing specific issues and approaches: getting the problem clear, assigning homework between sessions, and focusing on strengths.

Part Two connects many of the typical problems encountered in parish ministry to specific counseling interventions which work in only a few sessions. Using many examples formulated out of Stone's years of counseling experience, it allows the reader to visualize each approach and make use of it as a counseling strategy.
