Pastoral Theology (Biblical & Pastoral Theology Track)

Building on the knowledge and skills learnt from Pastoral Studies, the aim of this module is to provide you with a more robust understanding of the essentials of pastoral theology by examining the issues and challenges related to pastoral care in our contemporary contexts. The biblical and theological basis and the practical implications of the pastoral ministry will be examined critically to show the difference between pastoral ministry and other caring professions. A historical survey of pastoral care and contemporary application will provide case studies for critical analysis of the pastoral role today.
