The Indispensable Guide series offers tightly focused, relatively brief, accessible, and practical books for students in seminary, alternate paths to ministry groups, and lay ministry programs. Each book introduces core concepts, provides ample illustrations, and includes a helpful resource list.

Publisher's Description

This guide presents a basic description of both theological and practical dimensions of pastoral care, what makes care distinctly "pastoral," as compared to other kinds of caregiving. The teaching approach used here is both conceptual and practical. Readers will explore basic concepts important in understanding each area of care, and learn how to use both traditional and contemporary resources in improving the care they offer.
