Review

"More than a conventional clergy and chaplain's practical handbook.... Charts the contours of the discipline, with sensitivity and appreciation for diversity, integrity and interdisciplinarity.... Every professional in the field should have this volume on his or her desk."
Lester Edwin J. Ruiz, PhD, director, Accreditation and Institutional Evaluation,
The Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada

"A 'must have' volume for all care providers, whether student, supervisor or local practitioner ... whether in a solo position or a member of a larger staff."
The Rev. Dr. David C. Johnson, BCC, ACPE Supervisor;
president, Association of Professional Chaplains

“Helps to form those who practice and teach this vital vocation in practical and profound essays. A useful resource for seminaries and practitioners.... I commend it to all who help create sacred places and times to heal wounds of mind and heart and who enable the spiritual journey to continue to unfold.”
The Rev. Gregg A. Mast, PhD, president, New Brunswick Theological Seminary

“Impressive.... An excellent resource for providers of pastoral care as well as a teaching resource for those professionals who teach pastoral care.”
Sally A. Schwab, president-elect, Association for Clinical Pastoral Education

“A significant and invaluable gift to the profession of chaplaincy.... A prized resource for the CPE student and the twenty-five-year-anniversary chaplain [and] answers a real need.”
David A. Lichter, DMin, executive director, National Association of Catholic Chaplains

“A guidebook that points the way at the critical beginning of the [chaplaincy] path.... An invaluable resource for the most seasoned professionals as well as beginning students.”
