Pastoral Care in Context
Full Product Description
An expert in the field of pastoral care, John Patton demonstrates that pastoral care is a ministry of the church. He focuses on the community of faith as an authorizer and source of care and upon the relationship between the pastor and a caring community. Patton identifies and compares three paradigms of pastoral care: the classical, the clinical pastoral, and the communal contextual. This third paradigm emphasizes the caring community and the various contexts for care rather than focusing on pastoral care as the work of the ordained pastor.
Pastoral Care in Context by John Patton was published by Westminster John Knox in February 2005 and is our 47232nd best seller. The ISBN for Pastoral Care in Context is 9780664229948.
