Gratis frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.This is the first book to show how Latin American liberation theology can be applied to and can transform pastoral care in countries such as Britain and the USA. Hitherto pastoral care has tended to concentrate on looking after individuals. Stephen Pattison suggests that much of the suffering endured by individuals is actually socially and politically caused, and so is avoidable if the appropriate action is taken. The author argues that what we now require is a socio-politically aware and committed pastoral care which makes an option for oppressed and poor people and engages in practical struggle against the forces of injustice and oppression. Focussing as it does especially on mentally ill people and on women, the book will be of interest to all those who want to broaden their vision and knowledge of liberation theology or pastoral care, whether theologians, pastors, students for ministry, members of caring professions, or users of the services they provide.

"Stephen Pattison has performed an important task by raising so sharply important issues for all engaged in pastorcal care, issues which will not go away. This is a book to be read and discussed." --Theology
"Pattison's writing is compelling and must be taken seriously, especially as pastoral care and counseling and pastoral theology are struggling to refashion themselves in the light of social and political realities." Journal of Religion
"Pattison has written a strong volume which illustrates the validity of one of the major types of practical theology. His work deserves to be studied by all practical theologians in hopes that the work of the rest of us will begin to approach his level of competence." James Poling, International Journal of Practical Theology
