The Pastor as Theologian

Wesley Carr

The Pastor as Theologian

Wesley Carr

$20.99

Paperback
Instead of first learning some theology and then applying it to the questions of pastoral care, it is better to start from practical experience, and by reflection arrive at a theology. Ministers and trainee ministers are guided in this book towards a way of integrating theology, pastoral activity and personal faith. Since it was first published, the new 'discipline' of practical theology has grown into importance, and we are now much more aware of how groups function. These changes are reflected in this new, largely rewritten edition.

- Publisher "Living among 'their' people, ministers need to sense the power of dynamic forces, such as projection or dependency, with which they work. As theologians, they need an approach to doctrine that takes due note of contemporary thinking about what it is to be human. Not only will this stimulate them to proclaim the gospel afresh, it will also enliven their pastoral care and renew their faith."--BOOK JACKET.

Wesley Carr

The Very Reverend (Arthur) Wesley Carr, KCVO, (PhD., University of Sheffield, DLitt., Bristol) was Dean of Westminster 1997-2006. He took the funeral service for Diana, Princess of Wales; five years later he took the funeral of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. In 1998 he was at the centre of a controversy over the sacking of the Abbey's organist, Martin Neary, who had set up a private company to avoid tax on payments from outside for musical services rendered.

Dr Carr has written both academic and pastoral books such as Angels and Principalities (Cambridge, 1977/2005) The Priestlike Task (SPCK,1985), Brief Encounters (SPCK,1985), Pastor as Theologian (SPCK, 1989/ 2008), Say One for Me (SPCK,1992), Handbook of Pastoral Studies (SPCK, 1997) and Some Reflections on Sin and Evil (Free Associations Press, 2001).
