pastoral care in the picture 9 Nov 2006
By S. J. Visser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Dykstra gives a nicely written overview of the development of pastoral care: the relation and tensions between theological language and psychological language. His survey starts with Boisen and his concept of 'the living human document' and then he leads us through the development of the different schools of pastoral care as they have become manifest in their leading metaphors or images of pastoral care. I miss in his book somewhat the European Barthian kerygmatic view, presumably because it is quite contrary to the the development of American pastoral care, which is more closely connected it seems to a clinical setting and the pragmatic and psychologi(zising) way of looking, than in Europe, although the kerugmatic approach in Europe nowadays hardly exists anymore,at least in circles where pastoral care is professionalized. It would be interesting though to read once more E. Thurneysen and his followers to see if there might be something to discover, that can help us with the regaining of the theological 'proprium' in our pastoral care instead of getting more and more sucked into the psychological dimension. I missed in the book also the very important contribution of Ivan Boszormenyi Nagy, the contextual approach: the primate of the ethical dimension in human relations. The models of pastoral care that pointed to the social dimensions and political as a correction of onesided psychological ways of looking and interpreting were brought in by Dykstra but would have deserved more end deeper exploration. All in all it is a good and informative book.

If you picture it you can do it. 9 Jan 2007
By David Max Scheider - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My son plays better soccer after he watches a professional. If he sees what another player can do, he sees possibilities and begins to work on making those moves his own. This book will do something similar for the pastoral caregiver. After reading this collection of essays, the pastoral caregiver has a myriad of images to consider when looking for a role model for pastoral care. This is a must have for the pastor and chaplain who spends most of his or her energy and time in the cure of souls.

Excellent synopsis 23 Mar 2010
By L. Ammon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book gives a very short synopsis of the evolution of pastoral care and is quite interesting. Being a chaplain in hospice, I found it very inspiring and very informative.
Good Information! 23 Jun 2014
By Phil Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This text was very helpful in outlining the various aspects of pastoral care. It added to the information that I gleaned from other counseling texts.
great book 8 Mar 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Provides several images of being a pastoral caregiver. Very helpful for a pastor to identify how they are providing care in a paticular situation.
