About the book:

Professional theology has allowed itself to be cut off from the general ministry of pastors, except as it has informed preaching, teaching, and worship. Both theology and other aspects of pastoral care have suffered from this separation. The time is ripe to bring theology and pastoral care into mutually fruitful relations. John Cobb spells out aspects of contemporary theology specifically relevant to pastoral care and counseling, and indicates explicitly some of these practical implications. There seems now to be the possibility of a new consensus around finding God in the process of healing, growth, and creative transformation, as this works in individuals and in communities. This process directs us beyond our rational ability to project goals and purposes, and it can be called directivity. Trust in directivity as God's work and presence in the world undergirds and directs pastoral counseling.
