"One of the finest contributions to pastoral publishing this year..." (Preachings, 1/02)"A practical, thoughtful (and exceedingly thorough) resource nopastor should be without! Noren offers the kind of help many (new)pastors have longed for." -- Jana Childers, professor ofhomiletics, San Francisco Theological Seminary "A remarkably thorough and helpful resource. Noren offersvaluable theological reflection, contextual analysis, and pastoralguidance for ministry in times of crisis and sorrow. I wish I hadhad this book when I was a pastor." -- Charles L. Campbell,associate professor of homiletics, Columbia Theological Seminary,Decatur, Georgia "In the year 2020, when ministers are asked which books in theirlibrary they depend on most often, Carol Noren's book will be inthe top five. It addresses the most difficult area of ministry-withstrong historical and theological roots, with relevance, clarity,warmth, and good humor. Indeed, the growing array of laity who givepastoral care will find their way in reading, and rereading, thisbook." -- George G. Hunter III, dean, E. Stanley Jones Schoolof World Mission and Evangelism
