Reviews

This excellent and varied collection of essays confirms chaplaincy studies' place at the vanguard of practical and public theology. In affirming the mission of God as beginning in the world beyond the church, it challenges us, in turn, to become a more worldly church through the practices of discernment, participation and witness.--Elaine Graham, Grosvenor Professor of Practical Theology, University of Chester
With the massive changes going on currently in the Public Sector, Churches, along with our colleagues in the Voluntary Sector, are being looked to as partners in ways we have not known for decades. In Chaplaincy we have models to help us do this effectively but all too often a lack of theological reflection on its guiding principles has left us diminished. These essays help to fill that gap and I warmly commend them.--The Rt Revd Colin Fletcher, Bishop of Dorchester
This book offers helpful ideas, models, images, and experiences to think with, and it has the capacity to inspire ministries of meaning and practical action in diverse settings of our complex society.--David F. Ford, OBE Regius, Professor of Divinity Emeritus, University of Cambridge
This book will be of interest to chaplains who want to explore or deepen their theological understanding of chaplaincy and offers some useful material to discuss and debate in and across teams to tease out different understandings. Having an edited book offers a range of perspectives and understanding of the discipline of chaplaincy which will enrich the sector and make a significant contribution to the growing literature in the field.--Sally Nash, Director Midlands Institute for Children, Youth and Mission, Nottingham, UK.
