Publisher's Description

Grounded in the Living Word responds to the disconnect between pastoral care and biblical interpretation in a unique — and much-needed — manner. In this cross-disciplinary conversation Denise Dombkowski Hopkins and Michael S. Koppel engage the inter­sections between biblical stories and human stories in order to assist care practitioners and Bible interpreters in the transformative work of healing pastors, communities, and ultimately, creation.
