View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This significant contribution to pastoral theology brings together competent professionals--former students or longtime associates of Seward Hiltner--to explore contemporary developments in this field and to suggest avenues of investigation for the future. Twenty-four essays present a broad yet detailed assessment of accomplishments in the field since its beginning in the early 1900's. In a logical manner the articles outline the present shape of pastoral theology and look ahead to future prospects. An underlying theme is the great impact Dr. Hiltner's creative research and writing have made on the field of pastoral theology. In additional to the essays, there is an introduction by the editor and a foreword by Simon Doniger. More than a tribute to Seward Hiltner, The New Shape of Pastoral Theology contributes important understandings to pastoral theology and enriches the many facts of ministerial education as well as the work of the ministry in the world. /// Published in Honor of SEWARD HILTNER.
