Reconstructing Pastoral Theology: A Christological Foundation

Front Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, Sep 20, 2004 - Religion - 236 pages

In Pastoral Care in the Classical Tradition, Andrew Purves argued that pastoral care and theology has long ignored Scripture and Christian doctrine, and pastoral practice has become secularized in both method and goal, the fiefdom of psychology and the social sciences. He builds further on this idea here, presenting a christological basis for ministry and pastoral theology.
