Christopher Moody addresses the lack of clarity and certainty about the pastoral role of the clergy by recovering a deeper and more biblical understanding of the role. He explores the relationship between pastoral care and authority, concluding that there is a need for pastors to re-join the community and to identify with the people in it.This involves a movement away from some current professional models towards a positive evaluation of the diversity of religious experience and perspectives among the churched and unchurched alike.
