Description:

What is the link between justice and compassion? This collection of essays will discuss the realities of racism, sexism, heterosexism, ageism, ableism, and classism prevalent within the church and society in an effort to broaden and inform pastoral caregivers with the knowledge and the skills needed to respond effectively to oppressed and marginalized persons. The collection will also help pastors to reflect on the ways their own social location has an impact on their ministries and gain familiarity with resources available to support pastoral caregivers in a variety of contexts.
