Pastoral care in the Northern hemisphere has focused traditionally on the well-being of individuals, and has tended to ignore the social order of which they are a part. In this pioneering book, Stephen Pattison draws on the methods and insights of Latin American liberation theology in order to challenge such narrow individualism, which is blind to matters of inequality and injustice that engender and perpetuate avoidable human suffering. A new vision of socially and politically aware pastoral care is presented as central to developing human potential.

Industry Reviews

"Stephen Pattison has performed an important task by raising so sharply important issues for all engaged in pastorcal care, issues which will not go away. This is a book to be read and discussed." --Theology "Pattison's writing is compelling and must be taken seriously, especially as pastoral care and counseling and pastoral theology are struggling to refashion themselves in the light of social and political realities." Journal of Religion "Pattison has written a strong volume which illustrates the validity of one of the major types of practical theology. His work deserves to be studied by all practical theologians in hopes that the work of the rest of us will begin to approach his level of competence." James Poling, International Journal of Practical Theology
