Product Description

Can a doctrine of the Trinity exist apart from pastoral experience? Fiddes says no---clergy or laity, our participation in the triune communion shapes our knowledge of God and our ensuing caring practices. He presents Trinitarian doctrine in dialogue with key issues, including the nature of power and authority, intercessory prayer, suffering, forgiveness, and more. 312 pages, softcover from Westminster/John Knox.

Publisher's Description

In Participating in God, Paul Fiddes seeks to develop an image of God that is both appropriate to the demands of pastoral care and firmly grounded in the revelation of God. He explores the way in which pastoral care shapes our doctrine of God and how faith in the triune God in turn shapes the practice of pastoral care. Fiddes elaborates on the Trinitarian context for the pastoral acts of intercessory prayer, suffering, granting forgiveness, the facing of death, the exercising of spiritual gifts, and the sacraments.
