Pastoral Care and Counseling has changed radically since the publication of the Dictionary of Pastoral Care and Counseling. Rapid changes have occurred in theological, social, and medical contexts broadening the understanding of care. The shift from the "living human document" to the "living human web" both enriches and challenges the study and practice of pastoral theology. Just as the Dictionary of Pastoral Care and Counseling defined the field of Pastoral Care, this volume brings the field current. Edited by Nancy J. Ramsay.  Contributors for the essays include Nancy J. Ramsay, Joretta L. Marshall, Emmanuel Y. Lartey, Christie Cozad Neuger, Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore, and Loren L. Townsend. Topics include: Pastoral Theology; Public Theology; Power and Difference; Globalization, Internationalization, and Indigenization; Training in Clinical Ministry; Methodology.


"The major contribution of this new volume is the attention it gives to how the practices of care have changed in the last fifteen years due to the inclusion of the voices of Euro-American, African American women and men, and international people." 

Edward P. Wimberly

"The perspectives offered in this volume make the original Dictionary of Pastoral Care and Counseling a more valuable resource for the student and pastor.  The bibliography alone is like having a research assistant at your fingertips and demonstrates the wide-ranging relevance of pastoral theology today."
John Patton

"This is a must read for pastors, counselors, and anyone who offers or teaches pastoral care and counseling."
Teresa E. Snorton
