As Allan Cole knows firsthand, both personally and pastorally, Christians are not immune from anxiety, and many believers go to their church leaders for support and solace. This helpful book draws on narrative approaches to theology and counseling to suggest how pastoral caregivers may effectively minister to anxious persons.Be Not Anxious provides pastors and other caregivers with a basic understanding of anxiety, including how to identify those suffering from it and how to get at what is making them anxious. Cole focuses both on cognitive-based methods and on common faith practices -- church membership, frequent worship, prayer, Bible reading, service, and confession -- showing how these may provide relief from anxiety. By addressing the roles of both psychiatry and ministry as co-liberators from anxiety, he leads the pastor and the faith community in helping disquieted souls to find rest.

BIBLE IN PASTORAL PRACTICE

The Bible is at the heart of Christian life and witness. Yet the application of the Bible to the practice of Christian faith -- to spiritual growth, pastoral discussion, and even preaching -- is often too naove and simplistic.

"The Bible in Pastoral Practice" recovers a critical awareness of the ways in which the Bible is -- and might better be -- employed in pastoral practice, whether such practice entails visiting those in the hospital, teaching a church education class, or campaigning against world debt. Experts address a fascinating array of topics -- from pastoral practice before the Bible to Ignatian spirituality -- arranged according to three broad areas of concern: how the Bible has been used by pastors of the past; how contemporary methods of biblical scholarship can be applied to pastoral practice; and how the Bible applies to the Christian life today in such areas as ethics, preaching, and the arts.

This invaluable resource will equip scholars, teachers, students, and those in all areas of pastoral work to creatively appropriate the Bible.

CARING CULTURES

Skilled pastoral caregiving, Susan Dunlap argues, requires an understanding of the culture of the local congregation where it is practiced. An engaging example par excellence, Caring Cultures looks closely at three very different congregations' responses to the body in times of illness: an African American congregation in the Apostolic Holiness tradition; a Euro-American mainstream Protestant church; and the Latino members in a Roman Catholic parish.

With vivid examples drawn from the author's interviews and observations, this beautifully written book shows how each congregation has developed divergent ways of thinking about the body, habits of responding to it, and understandings of God's response to the body's pain or peril. The author offers unusually rich descriptions of care-giving as it is displayed in these three congregations, integrating both well-explained theory and moving personal stories.

"A great deal of confusion exists today as to what pastors are to be," Lawrence writes. "Are they chaplains, CEO's, preachers, managers, or counselors? Paul gave us the answer long ago: They are to be equippers, disciple-makers." Just as the great artist Michelangelo took a chipped and flawed piece of marble and transformed it into a masterful sculpture of David, so does a pastor with his flock. "This is pastoring," writes Lawrence, "serving as sculptors of souls."

The chapters of this book were originally delivered as papers at a symposium on the gospel ministry in the present day at the John Owen Centre for Theological Study, London, England. Evangelist, pastor, teacher - today's gospel minister juggles several different roles. As Andrew A. Davies says in his paper, 'Pastoring the flock of God in today's world is a challenging business. This is partly because the pastoral office itself is under attack, partly because professionals have taken over pastoral functions, and partly because pastors have to deal with an often-bewildering variety of pastoral difficulties.' From the biblical foundations of gospel preaching through a historical review of pastoral ministry to a look at ministry in the context of contemporary society, the contributors to this book evaluate the work of gospel ministry, explore in detail the roles of pastor, teacher, and evangelist, and conclude with an examination of ministerial training.
