Most Helpful Customer Reviews

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Michael T. Seawright on June 26, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Hope in Pastoral Care and Counseling is a fine book. Lester's thesis regarding hope is solid and convincing. That being said, it has its shortcomings. It seems like Lester is not sure who his audience is: pastors in a parish setting, pastoral counselors/therapists, or chaplains. It would probably be most useful for chaplains. For the pastor in a parish setting, there is good material to be gleaned, and it is helpful, but it wouldn't be on the top of my list when it comes to pastoral work. It is fairly accessible (not overly academic) but dry. For the chaplain or pastoral counselor, it should be on your bookshelf. For the parish pastor--maybe.

The heart of Lester's message is so ontime. So much of our anxiety is rooted in uncertainty about our future. Lester's work seeks to unpack our fears.

Lester gives good ideas to bring into my ministry. The personal experiences were wonderful examples of helping people. This book was a good help in understanding the idea of Pastoral Care.
