Item description for Social Ministry: An Urgent Agenda for Pastors and Churches by Haskell M. Miller...
Overview Social Ministry is a response to needs I felt during a long ministry, about half of which was in the pastorate and half in church college, university, and theological seminary teaching. As a pastor, I seemed almost constantly confronted with social problems and issues. I felt some obligation to respond to them but also felt uncertain and ill epuipped. In teaching, especially where young seminarians were concerned, I became keenly aware of how little was being done to help students develop social awareness and to help prepare them for the responsibilities of leadership in dealing with social issues, handling social problems, and making major decisions affecting the quality of life in their communities. This book is intended to reflect broadly on the societal dimensions of ministry, and on social problems and ways of dealing with them as a Christian minister. I propose to address the pastor directly, making the best suggestions I can concerning social action as pastoral responsibility.
