Jesus said, "A new commandment I give to you: that you love one another as I have loved you"? (John 13:34). He could hardly have put it more plainly - caring is not an optional extra for Christians.
This book is rich with tips for caring for one another as well as setting out clear principles for starting and maintaining a pastoral care ministry. Moreover, there are many opportunities throughout the book to analyse yourself as you read so that you can be better equipped to care for others.
"People want to care, but they often don't know how and they are frightened of making things worse. Jill has provided us with an excellent resource that is biblical, readable, practical and tested. Jill lives out in her life what she teaches us in this book. I highly recommend it."?
