About This Book
This book sets out a Christological framework for developing and delivering pastoral supervision. Pastoral supervision is a key consideration for any denomination, congregation or faith-based organisation, so this is a vital resource for well-being for clergy, chaplains and the wide array of pastoral workers.
Three central Christological themes, the revealing, re-membering and restoring Jesus, provide the theological framework for good supervision practice. The book draws insights from three gospel passages––Luke 24: 13–34, Luke 22: 39–53 and John 21: 1–14––for its Christological themes. The practical Christology for pastoral supervision is deepened and extended through three theologians: Martin Luther (reformed), Emil Brunner (neo-orthodox) and James McClendon (small B baptist).
Professional supervision (coaching, mentoring and spiritual direction) is increasingly sought––even required––by many people in church and faith-based organisations. This book will, therefore, be an excellent resource to theologians interested in supervision, practical theology, and Christology.
