The art of listening lies at the heart of pastoral ministry. Listeningestablishes a genuine relationship between persons and creates anenvironment for authentic dialogue. This book provides a comprehensivestudy of the art of listening for those currently practicingor studying for vocations in pastoral care and counseling.Neil Pembroke constructs a practical theology of what it meansto be a supportive, healing, growth-promoting caregiver. He buildshis theology on the work of Gabriel Marcel and Martin Buber, twophilosophers who posited meeting or dialogue as primary in interpretingthe nature of human existence in the world. Throughoutthe book Pembroke applies the approach of these two thinkers tothe practical task of pastoral care, showing that meaningful person-to-person dialogue is the result of availability, which involves receptionof the other, and confirmation, which encourages others togrow into their God-endowed potential.The first book to isolate and present in practical terms theessential components of effective pastoral care, this book is mustreading for everyone employed by the profession.
