Pastoral Theology: Essentials of Ministry
List price: $25.95
This much-needed book fully integrated principles of pastoral care, leadership, and theology to restore to ministers a clearly defined pastoral identity. Moving from a critique of inadequate models for ministry----from community organizer to T.V. evangelist----Oden develops a more classical model, rich in its references to the past and compatible both with Christian faith and theology through the ages and with current needs.
