Completely rewritten and updated for the 1990s, this new edition of a classic text explores every aspect of pastoral care from counseling to preaching. "A wealth of insight, encouragement and resource for effective ministry."--N. Larry Baker
In this revised and updated edition of a modern classic, Bryant Myers shows how Christian mission can contribute to dismantling poverty and social evil. Integrating the best principles and practice of the international development community, the thinking and experience of Christian nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and a theological framework for transformational development, Myers demonstrates what is possible when we cease to treat the spiritual and physical domains of life as separate and unrelated.

Murder, sexual abuse, adultery-all leave lifelong wounds and all are unforgivable trespasses that through the grace of God can be forgiven.
Dr. David Stoop compassionately guides us along the course of heartfelt forgiveness, freeing us to apply the biblical teachings that have already changed thousands of lives.
Adakah hatimu gelisah? Adakah hatimu gundah-gulana? Adakah hatimu pedih, sedih dan sempit dek kerana dosa dan pelbagai masalah yang menimpa? Mungkinkah HATIMU sudah lama tidak di BASAHI dengan iman? Bagaimana pula dengan air mata mu? Sudah berapa lama ia kekeringan? Sudah berapa lama ia tidak berlinangan kerana penyesalan? Dan sudah berapa lama pipimu tidak di BASAHI air mata keinsafan?
