Through the Eyes of Women

Through the Eyes of Women

A comprehensive survey of care of women, by women, from a religious standpoint results from the collaboration of nineteen leading women in the field of pastoral care. Subjects include the role of women in pastoral theology and pastoral care, care of African American women, and of women entering ministry. The book treats anger, aggression, lesbian identities, loss of mothers, eating disorders, hysterectomy, mastectomy, rape, and older women's issues. The volume concludes with women's spiritual care, community, self-sacrifice, and self-denial.

"The whole field of pastoral care is explored with important reconstructive suggestions. I look forward to using this text in both my introduction to pastoral care and my pastoral counseling with women courses."
— Christie Cozad Neuger, United Seminary of the Twin Cities.

"A superb sequel to Women in Travail and Transition, this book is a crucial sourcebook—both theoretical and practical—for pastors, lay care team leaders, pastoral counselors, chaplains, and seminarians."
— Judith L. Orr, Saint Paul School of Theology

"A clear-sighted yet visionary text—an uncommon achievement! The authors collectively demonstrate that in a few brief but agonizing years, women have moved from denied to different, to dominant voice in the field of pastoral care, and that gender issues are the issue toward which all other issues converge."
— Donald Capps, Princeton Theological Seminary
