Item Description...
Bringing comfort to the sick or dying is never easy. Drawing from his own experience, Kirkwood shows laypeople and clergy what's helpful---and what's not---and provides a "theology of visitation" to guide your time with friends and patients. Includes an all-new section on the best practices for hospital chaplains; and prayers for specific circumstances.

Publishers Description
Bringing comfort and concern to the bedside of the sick or dying is a challenge for lay people and clergy alike. In this practical guide, Neville Kirkwood shares his wisdom gleaned from some twenty years of experience as a hospital chaplain on the art of hospital visitation. This classic handbook is now updated, with an all-new section addressing best practices for hospital chaplains. Pastoral Care in Hospitals, with additional sections addressed to clergy and trained lay pastoral workers, as well as ordinary lay people who simply want to visit their fellow-parishioners, shows visitors ways to make the encounter meaningful and enriching to the patient. Kirkwood guides readers through the minefield of hospital visits from false heartiness to too much talking and offers a theology of visitation that can guide both professionals and laity in their ministry. A variety of exercises and a section of prayers for specific circumstances make this a must-have resource for all who work with the sick and dying, and an excellent text for course work. "

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Information, experience, guidance, and inspiration  Nov 14, 2005
It has always been a special responsibility of clergy to offer comfort and concern to the bedside of the sick and the dying. Now in a newly revised and expanded second edition, Pastoral Care In Hospitals by author, lecturer, and hospital chaplain Neville Kirkwood shares his more than twenty years of experience, expertise and wisdom to assist clergy and trained lay pastoral workers (as well as ordinary lay people who simply want to visit their fellow-parishioners or family members) in making their visits and ministries more meaningful and enriching to the patients they attend. Readers will learn what to avoid (such as false heartiness and too much talking) and what to embrace (gentle candor and unobtrusive faith). Of special note are the variety of exercises and the section of prayers for specific circumstances. If you are charged with the responsibility of ministering to the ill and the dying in hospitals, hostels, or homes, then read what Hospital Chaplin Neville Kirkwood has offer by way of information, experience, guidance, and inspiration.
Best Hospital Ministry Book  Dec 29, 2000
As a new hospital chaplain I found this book extremely valuable. While there are only a few books specific to hospital ministry, this is probably the best introductory work. It covers a good variety of topics like the critical examination of self, proper use of prayer, patient's needs etc. I found the information quite useful. I have implemented some of the techniques in my ministry work. If you are looking for one book on hospital ministry this would be your best bet. I also recommend "The compassionate visitor" and 'The Hospital Visitation manual.
