The New Library of Pastoral Care is designed to meet the needs of those concerned with pastoral care, whether clergy or lay, who seek to improve their knowledge and skills in this field. Personal stories and case studies will prove useful to any who wish to understand the role of the pastor in today’s church. This collection draws upon research and experience from professional fields that particularly relate to pastors in their work: social work, counseling, psychotherapy, and community development. These volumes will clarify and strengthen the roles every pastor is sure to take on in ministry.
The Logos version makes this resource even more relevant, saving you time and strengthening your study. Scripture references appear on mouseover and link to your preferred translation. This collection fully integrates into your digital library, cross-referencing with your dictionaries and other reference tools for powerful searches.
