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.Ballard, Paul is the author of 'Bible in Pastoral Practice Readings in the Place and Function of Scripture in the Church', published 2006 under ISBN 9780802831156 and ISBN 080283115X.
