Item description for Giving Birth: Reclaiming Biblical Metaphor for Pastoral Practice by Margaret L. Hammer...
Overview The birth of a child is important in the lives of women, families, and communities. But as a metaphor for pastoral practice, it is a sadly underdeveloped theme in theology and ministry. The author offers a remedy for this lack with this unique work, urging the incorporation into worship of Scripture with allusions to birthing--which would enliven the church's theology.
