A preface by John Patton and a comprehensive introductory section, provide a critical overview and introduction to the field of pastoral studies within the context of modern theology, together with a historical perspective on the development of the discipline in the modern era.

Reviews

"This is a textbook to be recommended. The whole spectrum of practical theology, including the feminist perspective, is covered." Norbert Mette, International Journal of Practical Theology "An invaluable book for teachers and students of pastoral theology, this is a 'must' for any serious student of pastoral theology? Journal of Beliefs and Value ?As a resource for students and teaches in the field, this is a Reader that is practically de rigueur for a theological library or personal bookshelf?The editors and Blackwell publishers should be congratulated on this very fine contribution to theological enquiry and practice.?
