Pastoral Care to Muslims by Neville A. Kirkwood

Book Description

Fulfill Christ's injunction in Matthew 25! Pastoral Care to Muslims: Building Bridges recognizes that more and more often pastoral care workers are encountering Muslims in hospitals. This is the guidebook you need to provide the spiritual support these patients are able to accept--support that doesn't conflict with their religious affiliations. The first section of Pastoral Care to Muslims provides an outline of the major beliefs of Islam, chiefly those that relate to illness and dying. The Koran is freely quoted to support these beliefs and practices. The second section of the book delivers a set of guidelines for the practice of pastoral care to hospitalized Muslims. These guidelines have been field tested with positive results. The book's two appendixes supply you with samples of the kinds of prayers that are acceptable to Muslims. In this valuable book you'll find: * background information about the Muslim faith * quotations from the Koran that you can use in your practice * what you need to understand about the Muslim view of sickness, death, and dying Plus explanations of terms and concepts found in Islam, including: * the Islamic Creed * Tawhid (the concept of the unity of God) * Gehenna (Hell) * the Five Pillars of IslamPastoral Care to Muslims: Building Bridges will help you do just that: build bridges between Christians and Muslims. It will supply you with material you can use to minister to Muslims without the fear of offending them and give you the confidence you need to deliver effective pastoral care to this growing segment of the population.
