In his holistic and intercultural re-visioning of pastoral care and counselling, Emmanuel Lartey attempts to capture the complex nature of the interaction between people who have been influenced by different cultures, religions, social contexts, origins and gender. He examines various models of pastoral care, drawing on experiences, reflections and theories from the "Third World," and appraises the International Council for Pastoral Care and Counselling founded in 1819. He examines approaches to pastoral care that draw on liberationist perspectives from Latin America, Asia and Africa; feminist theology, womanism and Black theology. A contemporary spirituality is discussed which draws on different religious traditions including African, Eastern, Semitic and Western. Ultimately, this book aims to make pastoral care and counselling more relevant to the multicultural contexts within which most pastoral practitioners now live.

Emmanuel Y. Lartey is Lecturer in Pastoral Studies and Pastoral Theology at the University of Birmingham. Previously, he was Lecturer in Practical Theology at the Trinity College and Department for the Study of Religions at the University of Ghana, Legon.
