Multifaith Views in Spiritual Care, Edited by Daniel S. Schipani
2013. 198 pp. ISBN: 978-1926599304
This book was designed with a twofold purpose: to foster appreciation for the uniqueness and special gifts of seven faith traditions, together with a deeper understanding of commonalities and differences among them; and to encourage collaboration among spiritual care practitioners and scholars.
"One of the strengths of Multifaith Views is demonstrating to the reader how the overlapping core competencies for spiritual care givers are refracted through the lens of particular faith traditions. In his epilogue, Schipani appears to draw on all of the preceding chapters, as well as his own research and theories, to present a comprehensive list of core competencies in the domains of doing, knowing and being. These pages alone could serve as a worthy manifesto for every interfaith spiritual care provider."
