Customer Reviews for Beacon Hill Press Foundations of Pastoral Care

Beacon Hill Press Foundations of Pastoral Care

Pastoral Ministry Professor Bruce L. Peterson explains that 21th century pastoral care involves more than just those who take the title "Pastor". Laity and small groups need to have a hand in the care of soul as well, if the church is to be healthy. The roles of shepherding, counseling, and collaboration are clarified. The pastor's presence in conflict resolution, crisis, through suffering, and death is also dealt with.

Bruce Peterson has hit the nail on the head with this book. A pastor needs support of the laity to be successful. Not using the laity in soul care is a disservice to the laity he is called to lead.
