Item description for Spiritual Care (Sources Of Early Christian Thoug) by Dietrich Bonhoeffer & Jay C. Rochelle...
Overview In Bonhoeffer's book he provides a theological base for pastoral theology, but he offers advice on many familiar ministerial tasks, such as conducting baptisms, funerals and weddings. It is a mine of wisdome and detailed practical advice on how to exercise spiritual care of both kinds.
Publishers Description Bonhoeffer says spiritual care is a function of the congregation and that it is an aspect of the broader, more encompassing activity of proclamation. In Spiritual Care, we are confronted with the awesome truth that in speech God's presence is known and that speech is also our own; in silence God's presence is known and that silence is also our own. The text demands us to consider how the gospel message is brought to people in the midst of their personal lives, and his message and counsel use the tools given within the traditional life of the church so that such grace becomes enacted, enfleshed, and incarnate in the Christian community.

Brilliantly the love of Christ Feb 10, 2010
Bonhoeffer lives up to true teaching toward the example of Christ. Forget the history of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and read the pages and how to apply this well written book to ministry and community in humanity. It is clearly written, wonderfully based on the example of Jesus Christ in revelation, and truly moving communion. Most of the pages had me taking notes and at awe at how in depth and powerful this book can be applied to my life and those in whom I can share the sometimes difficult times of life. The burden becomes light.
