Those who are afflicted as well as those who are adversely affected by mental illness often live lives of "quiet desperation" without recourse to appropriate assistance. Most caregivers confronted with these illnesses in the work of ministry have had no training or accurate information about mental illnesses, so frequently they do nothing, resulting in further harm and damage. Others may operate out of a theological system that does not adequately account for the nature, severity, or treatment of these illnesses.
In Ministry with Persons with Mental Illness and Their Families, psychiatrists and pastoral theologians come together in an interdisciplinary, collaborative effort to ensure accuracy of information concerning the medical dimensions of mental illness, interpret these illnesses from a faith perspective, and make suggestions relative to effective ministry. Readers will learn how science and a faith tradition can not only co-exist but work in tandem to alleviate the pain of the afflicted and affected.

About the Author:

Robert H. Albers is Distinguished Visiting Professor of Pastoral Care at United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities. William H. Meller, MD, practices psychiatry in Maple Grove and Minneapolis, Minnesota. Steven D. Thurber, PhD, LP, ABPP, practices clinical psychology in Willmar, Minnesota.

Review:

"A fascinating and insightful book that draws together theology and professional mental health care together in ways that are creative and deeply illuminating. For pastors who need to understand how to deal effectively and compassionately with mental health issues this is an ideal book." --John Swinton, University of Aberdeen

"Defying social and religious stigma, many of the authors write of living with or loving someone with psychiatric illness, openly using their first-person experience as a resource. This excellent guide goes way beyond the norm--use it for classes in your congregation and in your school!" --Kathleen Greider, Claremont School of Theology
