God's Love in Action: Pastoral Care For Everyone

Jill Mcgilvray

$19.99

Paperback
Jesus said, 'A new commandment I give to you: that you love one another as I have loved you' (John 13:34). He could hardly have put it more plainly. Caring is not an optional extra for Christians.

^^'People want to care, but they often don't know how and they are frightened of making things worse. Jill has provided us with an excellent resource that is biblical, readable, practical and tested. Jill lives out in her life what she teaches us in this book. I highly recomment it.'
^Revd Jackie Stoneman., Director of Studies, Mary Andrews College

^^'A challenge for the Christian church has always been the translating of theology into practice. This book will prove to be a valuable tool for Christians serious about authentic pastoral care. I would commend this book to congregations and individuals who want to see God's love made manifest in this world. This book will lead to people experiencing God's love "with skin on".'
^Revd Peter Pereira., Chaplaincy Coordinator, Wesley Mission Sydney

^^'Jill has a real heart for people, and her book is a helpful resource for all those involved in the vital ministry of caring. It includes a wide range of tools and would be suitable for use as a learning guide for parish training.'
^The Rt Revd Dr Chris Jones., ^CEO - Anglicare Tasmania Inc.
^Vicar General %26 Missioner Bishop - Anglican Diocese of Tasmania

^^'God's Love in Action' is a real treasure. It is a very practical and timely book that would be a valuable addition for any Christian minister, carer or church group - and for hospital, school and criminal justice chaplians, and grief counsellors.'
^Bishop Barbara Darling., Anglican Diocesan Ministries, Melbourne

^^'This little book packs a lot of love - "love with skin on" as Jill says. It's the skin of years of pastoral experience - not just doing it but training people to do it. It's biblical, practical, pastoral, passionate and road-tested. I'll use it in my parish pastoral care training.'
^Revd Dr Gordon Preece., Ethics lecturer, writer, consultant^
