Review:

...articles offer consistently high-quality information and refer to a rich array of resources to support their content. The topics covered make this a prized resource for the CPE student and the 25 year anniversary chaplain.

David A. Lichter, D.Min.
Executive Director
National Association of Catholic Chaplains

Each chapter is written by practicing and credible providers of pastoral care and represent a diverse cross-section of persons and settings for ministry. Each chapter is capable of standing alone. Excellent resource for providers of pastoral care as well as a teaching resource for professionals that teach pastoral care.

Sally A. Schwab
ACPE Pres.


A "must have" volume for all of those who are professional spiritual or pastoral care providers, whether student, supervisor, or local practitioners. There is something for everyone whether one is in a solo position or a member of a larger staff.

Rev. Dr. David Johnson BCC, ACPE Supervisor
President: Association of Professional Chaplains

Students and teachers of chaplaincy have been asking for a guidebook that points the way at the critical beginning of the path. Stephen Roberts has not only provided that book, but done so with so much insight. An invaluable resource for the most seasoned professional as well as beginning student.

Rabbi Julie Schonfeld
EVP: The Rabbinical Assembly
