The Ministry of Lament: Caring for the Bereaved

Author: Gene T. Fowler
Publisher: Chalice Press
Category: Christian Life & Practice, Christian Ministry & Pastoral Activity, Religious Counselling
Book Format: Paperback

For pastors and congregations, caring for those who are grieving is a very important but difficult job. Gene Fowler believes that the church needs a theological understanding of bereavement that can inform the ministry of caring for grieving people. The heart of The Ministry of Lament addresses the relationship between bereavement and the Christian faith in the service of caring ministry. Different parts of lament and mourning are emphasized throughout the book by Fowler so that the entire grief process can be addressed theologically.
