This work presents a study of pastoral care as the central pastoral ministry of the church, relating it to other functions of Christian ministry. The theological importance of pastoral care is explored, and other pastoral activities, which have parallels in secular therapies, redefined within this context. This book is central within the "New Library of Pastoral Care", striving as it does to balance the practical and the theological.
