Spiritual Caregiving in the Hospital: Windows to Chaplaincy Ministry, Edited by Leah Dawn Bueckert and Daniel S. Schipani
2006. 263 pp. ISBN: 978-1894710657
This book acknowledges and celebrates the unique contribution of hospital chaplains, fosters understanding and support for their work, and seeks to elicit interest in their ministry of spiritual caregiving.
"Bueckert and Schipani and the fifteen chaplains from Canada and the United States contributing to this book have provided windows for learning from those who give and receive chaplaincy ministry. The editors’ belief that 'chaplains, pastors, health care professionals, and other caregivers, whether in training or already practicing, will find it valuable' is well-founded. I will use this book not only for personal reference but as a resource in my work as a supervisor of clinical pastoral education."
