Pastoral care in the Northern hemisphere has traditionally focussed upon the well-being of individuals, ignoring the social order of which they are a part. This pioneering book draws on the methods and insights of Latin American liberation theology in order to present a new vision of socially and politically committed pastoral care.About the Author:
