Five Pathways to Wholeness examines a variety of approaches to pastoral care: biblical counselling, the healing ministries, pastoral counselling, spiritual direction and social change. Bringing together material from a range of sources, and offering numerous engaging real-life illustrations, the author compares and evaluates each of the five approaches in its own right. At the same time, he encourages those who favour a particular pathway to respect and understand the raison d'etre of the other four. All five, he believes, can move to a more truly 'integrational' theological and psychological viewpoint.

Abuse and trauma damage more than body and mind. The soul can also feel wounded. Shame and feelings of abandonment distort and limit one's ability to relate to a faith community and to trust in God. Experiences of abuse can block a person's capacity to pray and worship, and stunt spiritual growth. Shattered Soul reveals five pathways of healing for survivors of abuse and guides readers to wholeness, to experience life and faith anew. Included are inspiring stories of survivors who reflect on pathways of courage, holy anger, grief, forgiveness, and transformation. Your spirit will feel whole again!

Spiritual direction is as old as the Christian faith. Today there is an ever growing demand for this ministry, despite the decline in membership of the institutional Church. The Bible has always had a privileged place in the director's toolkit and has been mined as a resource in different ways. It has been a source of wisdom; it has provided material for prayer and reflection; it has encouraged those just beginning in prayer and those for whom prayer has run dry; it has challenged belief and behaviour in the struggle to discern God's will and set boundaries for orthodoxy in Christian experience. With that all this in mind, the author suggests that spiritual direction is not just for individuals but for the flourishing of the Church as a whole. There is evidence of a loosening of the links between Christian orthodoxy and the practice of spiritual direction. It is also often perceived as a private and individualistic pursuit. The author therefore asks how the Bible challenges this interpretation of a key but often unacknowledged ministry in the Church, and how it may help the whole Church to own spiritual direction and thereby benefit the wider world.

Drawing on scripture as well as holistic health practices, this practical guide blends the growing interest in spirituality and health with the examples set by Jesus, who encouraged his followers to embrace a life marked by physical healing, emotional wholeness, and spiritual abundance--moving people from physical pain to enlightenment and spiritual revelation. The book offers the four key principles--breathe, see, nourish and energize--as a daily living practice for readers to begin nurturing themselves both from the outside in, and the inside out. The book also offers techniques to help readers apply these principles in their day-to-day lives. A chapter is devoted to each of the four disciplines within the title. Each chapter describes the practice, placing it firmly and logically within the context of scripture. Throughout the discourse, the author shares stories of how people have encountered, struggled, and succeeded with the different elements of each practice. She also demonstrates how this overall process can lead to physical, mental, and spiritual transformation. Spiritual exercises, along with scripture passages, provide handy encouragement for readers to begin readily incorporating these disciplines into their lives.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.
