Performing Pastoral Care : Music as a Framework for Exploring Pastoral Care Paperback / softback

Part of the Studies in Religion and Theology series

Description

Making the case for the relevance of pastoral care today, this book explores the role of pastoral care through the prism of music.

Using musical analogies, the author provides a new way of understanding and practising pastoral care, grounded in practical theology.

Challenging overemphasis on mission, he shows that pastoral care remains essential to the life of the church, especially when engaging with extreme situations such as dying, suffering or war, and considers the role of pastoral carers in the specific pastoral encounter and in the life of the church in general.
