This updated and comprehensive version offers significant postmodern and inclusive perspectives that build on the legacy of Clinebell’s earlier work. It is a significant contribution to the field of pastoral care and counseling and ought to be read by laypersons and clergy in ministry who seek to offer healing and wholeness.
