Product Description

Grounded in experiential research and richly illustrated with case studies, Townsend's introduction offers an in-depth look at who pastoral counselors are; and how and why they provide this care. He addresses basic understandings; makes a case for pastoral identity as a unifying concept in an increasingly fragmented discipline; and details theoretical, practical, and theological issues. 160 pages, softcover from Abingdon.

Publisher's Description


Grounded in empirical research and richly illustrated with case studies, this introduction continues the theoretical, practical, and theological expansion of Pastoral Care and Counseling. Because of increasing cultural diversity and the fact that more training is done outside of seminaries in non-seminary related colleges and universities, there is fragmentation in the discipline. This makes a coherent orientation to pastoral care and counseling as a ministry increasingly difficult. To address this confusion, author, Loren Townsend, calls us to readdress basic understandings. He also makes the case that pastoral identity can function as a unifying concept.
