What does it means to be engaged in Christian ministry in a shifting spiritual and religious landscape? Given the divergence of types and contexts of Christian ministry today, this book invites readers to think anew about the distinctiveness of public practices of pastoral presence. Rather than narrowly defining pastoral care and pastoral theology (pastoral counseling, preaching, youth groups, visits to elders, etc.) and theological academic categories (history, pastoral theology, liturgy, ethics and contemporary sociology), the authors argue for a new imagination and practice of pastoral presence - a presence that is representative, public, integrated and expansive.
