Item description for Pray without Ceasing: Revitalizing Pastoral Care by Deborah van Deusen Hunsinger...

A challenging call to restore the primacy of prayer in congregational life.

Publishers Description

Taking seriously Paul?'s exhortation in 1 Thessalonians to pray without ceasing, Deborah van Deusen Hunsinger challenges pastors and congregations to put prayer at the center of their Christian practice and theological reflection. In this thought-provoking book Hunsinger reclaims spiritual practices from token use and unites them in a dynamic network of interdependent caring traditions.

The book begins with the three foundational disciplines of spiritual reading, careful listening, and self-reflection. Hunsinger then explores prayers of petition, intercession, confession, lament, and thanksgiving. Finally she offers practical, workable suggestions for developing pastoral care groups and teaching care-giving skills at the congregational level.

Clergy and laity alike will reap the benefits of this revitalizing look at the spiritual disciplines as dynamic forces in the life of the church.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pray without Ceasing: Revitalizing Pastoral Care?

Great resource for church teachers, leaders, and pastors  Mar 19, 2007
This is an excellent resource. The reading assumes some formal theological training, so it is a resource that is more useful for pastors, educators, spiritual directors who are looking for tools to help equip lay people for ministries of prayers. Both theoretical and practical, this is a must-have for the pastor's study!
Wow!  Sep 24, 2006
I loved reading it!!! Amazing! I've already recommended it to several people. As I was reading it, I kept thinking about how much fun it was to have excerpts from the Bible, Barth and others entwined for me to read, savor, and re-read. Hunsinger presents prayer and pastoral care in such a fresh way. Deeply grounded. Rich examples. Beautiful writing. In fact, sometimes I had to stop to reflect on the beauty of particular sentences. Thank you for the hard work and prayer that brought this book to life. It is a great gift to the church.
