A history of pastoral care is a history of the Christian church in action. But if any sense is to be made of the centuries of Christian work and effort, not only the practicalities of making the message of the Gospel a reality on earth, but also the ideas which have shaped the attempt, century by century, must be examined.This is the history of 2000 years of thought and practice in Christian pastoral ministry. Until comparatively late in that story the bulk of the formative thinking took place in the Middle East and in Europe and this forms the background for recent developments in understanding human nature, and the ways in which that understanding has influenced our thinking in pastoral care.Subjects covered range from the Biblical foundations to the sects and new religious movements; from the Fathers, the monks, the Friars, the Templars to the changes at the end of the twentieth century.... 288 of sins 162 confessor 77 confessora#39;s manuals 227 confidentiality 419 confirmation 179, 266, 274 confraternities 255ff, 267 Congregationalism 39, 319. ... 383ff, 386, 397, 398 Coventry 454 Cowley Fathers 336 Cranmer, Thomas 225, 228, 275, 299 creation 113, 202 creativity 1 1 5 Creed 113, 211, 243, 276 Nicene 437 crime and punishment 98-9 Cross, sign of the 234, 277 Crusade; crusaders 114, anbsp;...
