As Allan Cole knows firsthand, both personally and pastorally, Christians are not immune from anxiety, and many believers go to their church leaders for support and solace. This helpful book draws on narrative approaches to theology and counseling to suggest how pastoral caregivers may effectively minister to anxious persons."Be Not Anxious"provides pastors and other caregivers with a basic understanding of anxiety, including how to identify those suffering from it and how to get at what is making them anxious. Cole focuses both on cognitive-based methods and on common faith practices -- church membership, frequent worship, prayer, Bible reading, service, and confession -- showing how these may provide relief from anxiety. By addressing the roles of both psychiatry and ministry as co-liberators from anxiety, he leads the pastor and the faith community in helping disquieted souls to find rest."

BIBLE IN PASTORAL PRACTICE

The Bible is at the heart of Christian life and witness. Yet the application of the Bible to the practice of Christian faith -- to spiritual growth, pastoral discussion, and even preaching -- is often too naove and simplistic.

"The Bible in Pastoral Practice" recovers a critical awareness of the ways in which the Bible is -- and might better be -- employed in pastoral practice, whether such practice entails visiting those in the hospital, teaching a church education class, or campaigning against world debt. Experts address a fascinating array of topics -- from pastoral practice before the Bible to Ignatian spirituality -- arranged according to three broad areas of concern: how the Bible has been used by pastors of the past; how contemporary methods of biblical scholarship can be applied to pastoral practice; and how the Bible applies to the Christian life today in such areas as ethics, preaching, and the arts.

This invaluable resource will equip scholars, teachers, students, and those in all areas of pastoral work to creatively appropriate the Bible.

What if our differences became opportunities?

The world needs bold, united followers of Jesus. It needs you and me to understand and appreciate the contributions of our brothers and sisters in faith. However, too often, our blind spots lead to divisions and disagreements, preventing God's people from testifying to his grace with one voice.

In this provocative book, Collin Hansen helps us view our differences as opportunities to more effectively engage a needy world with the love of Christ. Highlighting the diversity of thought, experience, and personality that God has given to his people, Blind Spots lays the foundation for a new generation of Christians eager to cultivate a courageous, compassionate, and commissioned church.

Integrating one's spirituality, knowledge, and practice is often a lifetime project. Yet many of us, if we accomplish it at all, do so in a haphazard manner. One might even say that the process of sanctification aims toward a similar goal of wholeness. Giving people theological tools and ways to facilitate such integration is a worthy goal. Helping pastors, who often take the lead in facilitating other people's journeys, makes even more sense. For Charles Scalise integration is the goal: wisdom is the means; and authentic Christian practice of ministry is the result. He acknowledges various models exist to accomplish the task of integration, but each has necessary limits. Theological models of integration currently in use today are the correlational, contextual, narrative, performance, and regulative models. In order to guide the pilgrim toward authentic Christian practices of ministry, Scalise argues for wise eclecticism. The book enables the reader to explore possibilities for his/her own tailor-made approaches to ministry, balancing the strengths and weaknesses of various models, rather than relying solely upon one type or no type.By using a tailor-made approach, the minister is more effective in addressing the ever-changing needs of his or her world. The author's academic contribution lies in the fact that he takes the seminal work of practical theologians Don Browning and Donald Capps, and pastoral theologian Charles Gerkin one step further. Scalise constructs an overview of theological models specifically aimed toward the question of the relationship between the seminary classroom and ministry or toward the connections between constructive and pastoral theology.
