Journal of Pastoral Theology
The Journal of Pastoral Theology is published twice yearly by The Society for Pastoral Theology.
The mission of the Journal of Pastoral Theology is:
- to further the understanding of pastoral theology as a theological discipline and to clarify the nature of the discipline.
- to maintain a view of pastoral theology as a constructive theology growing out of the exercise of caring relation ships, with attention both to present lived experience and to knowledge derived from the past;
- to provide an intentional forum for the voices of diverse persons, women and men, of many cultural and ethnic backgrounds;
- to foster multi-cultural understandings of issues in the discipline;
- to promote and encourage multi-discipline/multi-cultural research in the field of pastoral theology;
- to provide resources for those who teach and those who study, through recording current research and assessing the relevant literature;
- to provide for the construction of sound theological principles for guidance and critique of pastoral practice; and to work creatively, synthesizing and constructing, to define the frontiers and parameters of the discipline.
