Genesis Books and Seminari Theoloji Malaysia
Copyright © D Steven Abbarow 2018
This book is a study on pastoral care and provides the context of pastoral care in Malaysia.Rev Canon Dr Steven Abbarow divides the book into three parts:
(a) Part One — Pastoral Reflections
(b) Part Two — Pastoral Care
(c) Part Three — Awareness
Part One focuses on pastoral care from the creation and fall narrative, while Parts Two and Three survey the theological meaning of Pastoral Care reflectively and contains testimonies and personal experiences to ground these reflections in the life of actual people engaging in real pastoral care tensions and challenges reflectively.Readers will learn more about pastoral care and where the source of that love is from—divine compassion from the One above. Divine compassion is not something we learn or earn but is given by grace to them (Romans 5:5) and that they are to be like the good Samaritan, loving not just their neighbours but anyone who needs their help.
