Item description for Pastoral Care to Muslims: Building Bridges by Neville A. Kirkwood, Ali Roude & Michael Putney...

Fulfill Christ's injunction in Matthew 25 Pastoral Care to Muslims: Building Bridges recognizes that more and more often pastoral care workers are encountering Muslims in hospitals. This is the guidebook you need to provide the spiritual support these patients are able to accept--support that doesn't conflict with their religious affiliations. The first section of Pastoral Care to Muslims provides an outline of the major beliefs of Islam, chiefly those that relate to illness and dying. The Koran is freely quoted to support these beliefs and practices. The second section of the book delivers a set of guidelines for the practice of pastoral care to hospitalized Muslims. These guidelines have been field tested with positive results. The book's two appendixes supply you with samples of the kinds of prayers that are acceptable to Muslims. In this valuable book you'll find: background information about the Muslim faith quotations from the Koran that you can use in your practice what you need to understand about the Muslim view of sickness, death, and dying Plus explanations of terms and concepts found in Islam, including: the Islamic Creed Tawhid (the concept of the unity of God) Gehenna (Hell) the Five Pillars of Islam Pastoral Care to Muslims: Building Bridges will help you do just that: build bridges between Christians and Muslims. It will supply you with material you can use to minister to Muslims without the fear of offending them and give you the confidence you need to deliver effective pastoral care to this growing segment of the population.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pastoral Care to Muslims: Building Bridges?

Necessary Text  Feb 20, 2007
Neville Kirkwood has added something to our understanding of the needs of the Muslim patient in our community. Although focused on the hospital it is an invaluable resource as it is neither the work of a blind follower nor the work of someone who wants Muslims to be "just like us". He understands the 'living human document' and allows us, regardless of our our faith, to engage appropriately with Muslims.

The text is clear and a resource for those of us with at best a working knowledge of Islam or even none at all. It should be in every Pastoral Care Department Resource Center and read by every chaplain. It complements his other works on various aspects of chaplaincy well.
