Item description for Building King's Beloved Community: Foundations for Pastoral Care and Counseling With the Oppressed by Donald Chinula...

"This book is a psycho-theological study of the life and thought of Martin Luther King Jr. Its aim is to uncover the keen psychological and theological insights King employed in presenting his program to the American public-insights that have such a significant bearing on the vocation of pastoral caregiving as to reshape and stretch it. The book's central concern is understanding the significance of King's thought and activities for the pastoral care and counseling of persons from oppressed groups or communities who present identity and self-esteem problems. The study examines those aspects of King's thought and work that possess discernible elements of pastoral psychology and practical theology applicable to the pastoral care and counseling of such persons." -from BUILDING KING'S BELOVED COMMUNITY How does oppression manifest itself in the structures and systems of society? Why is oppression a psychological and theological problem for the oppressed? What are the psychological and theological issues surrounding the phenomena of a tortured self-identity and diminished self-esteem? Through the study of King's life and witness, BUILDING KING'S BELOVED COMMUNITY will inspire and suggest a prophetic praxis to address these and other questions. This compelling book also seeks to broaden and inform the paradigm for pastoral caregiving in responding to the needs of oppressed people in any context, especially where Christianity is practiced.
