Product Description


Professor Lizette Larson-Miller, in "Anointing of the Sick," offers fresh pastoral insight on the many facets of this ministry. Her book gives readers the historical and theological foundations which undergird 'The Pastoral Care of the Sick', but also recovers an important lost dimension of the ministry of healing, namely, those ritual elements which do not require the ministry of a priest. The focus of the book is on the sacramental anointing of the sick, but the reader will also find a thorough discussion of the accompanying rituals as well as an exploration of issues related to the care of the sick which arise today in a rapidly changing medical scene in which pastoral decisions must be made.The Rev. Prof. Louis Weil, Church of Divinity School of the Pacific, Berkeley, California

Involved in ministry? READ THIS BOOK Sept. 17 2008
By K. D. Kelly - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you are involved in ANY kind of ministry to the ill and dying READ THIS BOOK! Read the scriptural bacground for it, check her citations, think over her reasoning and I think you'll agree that the book makes a great deal of sense. Lutheran that I am, I am ready to think that the anointing of the sick is indeed sacramental.

Excelente manual de unción de enfermos Aug. 31 2007
By Andrés Arteaga - Published on
Format: Paperback
Este libro es un excelente manual para estudiar la teología y la pastoral del sacramento de la unción de los enfermos, pues parte del texto del renovado ritual posterior a la renovación del Concilio Vaticano II. Con erudición histórica y teológica propone una revisión del sacramento a partir de la liturgia. Como bien lo indica la serie lex orandi, lex credendi. Totalmente necesario para un sacramento algo olvidado y una renovación pastoral por asumir. + Andrés Arteaga Manieu (Obispo Auxiliar de Santiago, Chile; profesor de Sacramentos in genere y Penitencia y Santa Unción de la Pontificia Universidad católica de chile y del Seminario Pontificio de Santiago)
