Description: The ritual Pastoral Care of the Sick offers the church a wealth of assistance in visiting and praying with the sick, in facilitating services of Communion, and in tailoring the sacramental rites of anointing and Viaticum to meet the particular circumstances of each individual illness and journey into death. The Anointing of the Sick is a theological introduction to the rite and focuses on the heart of the whole spectrum of pastoral care of the sick. Lizette Larson-Miller explores the sacrament of the anointing of the sick and the crucial role played by a biblical text from the Letter of James in reconstructing a rite for the sick rather than only for the dying. She looks at the central sacramental ideas surrounding the anointing of the sick that emerge from the three primary actions: the prayer of faith, the laying on of hands, and the anointing with the blessed oil. Chapters are "An Overview of the Rites of Pastoral Care of the Sick," "The Threefold Ritual Center of Anointing of the Sick," "Theological Questions from the Rite," and "The Contexts of Church and Culture for Pastoral Care of the Sick."
