Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Respond to God’s unfolding drama to bring healing and reconciliation.

In this major revision of his classic book, Dr. Edward Wimberly updates his narrative methodology by examining current issues in African American pastoral care and counseling.

"In this new edition, Ed Wimberly reconfigures what comprehensive care means for the African American struggle for dignity and proposes pastoral care approaches to the crisis of disconnection. Using his own narrative, Wimberly courageously describes how pastors and churches can claim a new narrative method for reestablishing the African American village. His paradigm for African American pastoral theology is inspiring."
--Homer U. Ashby Jr., W. Clement and Jessie V. Stone Professor of Pastoral Care, McCormick Theological Seminary, Chicago, Illinois

"Wimberly’s revision of his classic work African American Pastoral Care invites readers to reconsider narrative theology as a primary framework for pastoral care in the African American community and congregation. He adds perspectives on human sexuality and other current day issues to this new volume. First-time readers will find themselves taken by Wimberly’s own use of narrative as his conceptual and practical wisdom emerges throughout the book."
--Teresa E. Snorton, Executive Director,  Association for Clinical Pastoral Education, Inc., Decatur, Georgia
