Overview
Respond to God?s unfolding drama to bring healing and reconciliation.

In this major revision of his classic book, Dr. Edward Wimberly updates his narrative methodology by examining current issues in African American pastoral care and counseling.

"In this new edition, Ed Wimberly reconfigures what comprehensive care means for the African American struggle for dignity and proposes pastoral care approaches to the crisis of disconnection. Using his own narrative, Wimberly courageously describes how pastors and churches can claim a new narrative method for reestablishing the African American village. His paradigm for African American pastoral theology is inspiring."

"Wimberly s revision of his classic work "African American Pastoral Care "invites readers to reconsider narrative theology as a primary framework for pastoral care in the African American community and congregation. He adds perspectives on human sexuality and other current day issues to this new volume. First-time readers will find themselves taken by Wimberly s own use of narrative as his conceptual and practical wisdom emerges throughout the book." --Teresa E. Snorton, Executive Director, Association for Clinical Pastoral Education, Inc., Decatur, Georgia "

African American Pastoral Care Review  Sep 8, 2008
The author wrote in clear detail about counseling techniques and how to be an effective counselor as a pastor of a church. This book is very informative. The information in this book will help me become an effective counselor to my congregation.
 
Pastoral Care  Feb 17, 2007
I highly recommend this book. It was very helpfull for me during my Pastoral Care Class. It is a book everyone should have on the bookshelf to go back and review when ever needed.
 
Narrative Pastoral Care  Aug 29, 2005
"African American Pastoral Care" is Edward Wimberly's 1991 "sequel" to his 1979 "Pastoral Care in the Black Church." In his newer work, Wimberly continues his important focus on sustaining, healing, reconciling, and guiding, while highlighting a new emphasis--pastoral care through narrative.

Narrative therapy has been a growing model for at least two decades. Wimberly nicely blends the historical African American use of oral tradition with the insights of post-modern narrative therapy.

In his introduction and first chapter, Wimberly concisely explains the nature of narrative story-telling in African American pastoral care. In each subsequent chapter, he demonstrates how this model can be used in various counseling issues such as addiction, bereavement, life stages, marriage, and family matters.

Reviewer: Robert W. Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of "Soul Physicians," "Spiritual Friends," and "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction."
 
Outstanding resource  May 30, 2000
Edward Wimberly should be commended for writing such a powerful book in a few words. The book is short enough to read in just a few settings. This book is very helpful for the African American pastor because it sheds insight on how pastoral care is carried out in the black church. Wimberly addresses the various stages in life--birth, adolescence, young adulthood, middle adulthood, and older adulthood that has it peculiar problems. Moreover, I ejoyed his insight into the art of story telling. He suggests that people sometimes struggle because they feel they are all alone in what they are facing. By telling stories from the Bible and from experince the parishioner can find themselves in a place that assures them they are not alone. Just as God worked in the lives of the saints in the Bible, He is willing to work in our lives as well. Finally, Wimberly suggested encouraging people facing difficulties to wait until God is through working in them instead of throwing in the towel. God's plan is not always understood initially but He can be trusted to work for our good. Excellent book!
