Editorial Reviews

Review


"Fulkerson gives a rich account of practices of communal caring, central for the study and teaching of pastoral care and counseling. ...Fulkerson's demanding yet vivid writing makes the work accessible and presents an exemplary ethnographic study. The array of theoretical lenses and embodied experiences capture the nuances of a situation, displaying a deeply embedded wound up-close, and its potential for redemption." --Journal of Pastoral Theology


""The excellence of Places of Redemption as an exercise in practical theology, and its interest for those working in parishes and in the academy, lies in the way Fulkerson connects two levels of analysis. On the one hand, this is a book about how the universality of the grace of Christ gets effectively (though not perfectly) enaceted in a particular church community. On the other ahnd, this is a book about how to do academic theology." --Anglican Theological Review
