Pastor's Handbook is a major expansion and revision of author John Bisagno's previous work, Letters to Timothy, which collected more than one hundred brief chapters of practical insight for handling real life pastoral issues- "things that might have fallen through the cracks in seminary"-based on the author's fifty years in ministry. A decade into his retirement, Bisagno stills mentors young pastors and recognizes new challenges in this profession known for its high dropout rate. With that in mind, Pastor's Handbook adds helpful entries on such issues as "The Seeker Friendly Church," "Solving Worship Wars," "Multiple Campuses," "New Media," and "Home Groups" as well as "Internet Pornography," "Biblical Inerrancy," "Calvinism," "The High Cost of Overnight Change," "Homosexuality," "Christianity and Islam," and more than a dozen other topics. He also refreshes several of the original chapters, factoring in new world issues and his survey of pastoral colleagues.

The Handbook for Liturgical Studies provides a complete course of liturgical studies in five volumes. It is offered as a model, source, and reference for students of liturgy and liturgical ministry. The Handbook for Liturgical Studies is marked by a number of traits which differentiate it from its predecessor Anamnesis, published by the Pontifical Liturgical Institute. First, the subjects in the liturgical ordo, history, and tradition are examined as sources and components of the theology of liturgy. Next, the Handbook pays significant attention to the role played by the human sciences in the liturgy (psycho-sociology, anthropology, linguistics, and the arts.) Pastoral and spiritual considerations receive appropriate treatment in light of liturgical principles, and general models based on the meaning and purpose of the liturgy are suggested. The materials of the East and the non-Roman West are integrated with the Roman, providing a comprehensive vision of Christian worship. More than forty authors from Asia, Africa, Latin America, North America, and Eastern and Western Europe have contributed to the Handbook. Many are professors and graduates of the Pontifical Liturgical Institute in Rome. Each author, while drawing material from liturgical tradition and from ancient, medieval, and modern sources, writes also from a particular research and personal interest in a subject. Although diverse in style, the authors collectively express a spirit of fidelity to the Church, to its doctrine and tradition, and to its mission. The result is a cohesive view of the meaning, purpose, and celebration of Christian worship. The editor's goal through these volumes is for students to pay particular attention to the gradual unfolding of the material from Volume I to Volume V as well as to the methodology, historical setting, theological and spiritual doctrines, and the pastoral concerns in the Handbook. Through the study of these volumes, readers are led not only to a scientific understanding of the liturgy but also to an active and spiritually fruitful participation in the ecclesial celebration of Christ's mystery desired by the Second Vatican Council. Volume IV: Sacraments and Sacramentals contributes to a deeper understanding of the nature and purpose of sacraments and sacramentals and leads the reader to a more critical appreciation of Vatican II decrees and what the postconciliar reform has implemented. This fourth volume in the Handbook for Liturgical Studies series opens with a review of the basic liturgical notion of sacraments and sacramentals and then examines them according to their earliest known form going back to the first four centuries. After the fourth century the treatment is divided between the East and the West. Where opportune, as in the case of confirmation, questions are raised about pastoral implications of the postconciliar reform. Articles and their contributors are ?Christian Initiation During the First Four Centuries,? by Adrien Nocent, O.S.B.; ?Christian Initiation in the East,? by Stefano Parenti; ?Christian Initiation in the Roman Church from the Fifth Century Until Vatican II,? by Adrien Nocent, O.S.B.; ?Reconciliation in the First Four Centuries,? by Antonio Santantoni; ?Reconciliation in the Eastern Churches,? by Nicola Bux; ?Reconciliation in Rome and the Non-Roman West,? by Antonio Santantoni; ?Anointing of the Sick During the First Four Centuries,? by Stefano Parenti; ?Care and Anointing of the Sick in the East,? by Stefano Parenti; ?The Anointing of the Sick in the West,? by Philippe Rouillard, O.S.B.; ?Orders and Ministries in the First Four Centuries,? by Antonio Santantoni; ?Ordinations in the East,? by Stefano Parenti; ?Ordination and Ministries in the West,? by Antonio Santantoni; ?The Christian Rite of Marriage in the East,? by Stefano Parenti; ?The Christian Rite of Marriage in the West,? by Adrien Nocent, O.S.B.; ?Monastic Profession in the East,? by Manel Nin, O.S.B.; ?Rite of Religious Profession in the West,? by Matias Aug‚, C.M.F.; ?The Rite of Consecration of Virgins,? by Nichola Emsley, O.S.B.; ?Funeral Rites in the East,? by Elena Velkova Velkovska; ?Funeral Rites in Rome and the Non-Roman West,? by Vincent Owusu, S.V.D.; ?Blessings in the East,? by Elena Velkova Velkovska; and ?Blessings in Rome and the Non-Roman West,? by Renier Kaczynski.?This is a valuable reference tool for the scholar who needs to locate the significant text in any research area on the sacraments.?

How do we find and contact pastoral candidates? What background information do we need to know about pastoral candidates? What do we need to consider when developing a salary and benefit package for a new pastor? Each year several thousand churches face questions like these as they search for new pastors. To help make the process easier to help avoid costly mistakes, Dr. Henry Virkler has organized a comprehensive, step-by-step plan to guide search committees through the intricacies of selection procedures in Choosing a New Pastor. Dr. Virkler employs a transdenominational approach as he: -identifies twenty-one mistakes that pastor nominating committees make and suggests alternative steps to take; -steers churches through the phases of transition, from saying good-bye to the old pastor to orienting the new one; -proposes guidelines for conflict resolution when pastor and congregation disagree; -plus, it includes sample information forms, interview forms, and letters. This complete guide to pastoral selection will successfully guide you through the process both efficiently and effectively.

Written by a leading expert in the field of inclusion, Leading on Pastoral Care assists leaders and SENCOs in primary and secondary schools in managing the most difficult aspects of providing effective pastoral care, such as paperwork, time, confrontational parents and Ofsted. Drawing on research and his extensive experience in leading a team that has worked with over 1,000 schools, Daniel Sobel presents tried-and-tested strategies, tools and tips to support the welfare of and improve outcomes for the most challenged and vulnerable students, all backed by case studies and real-life examples. Pastoral care – being responsible for the welfare and progress of all students, particularly the most vulnerable – is an essential part of any leadership or SENCO role. However, one of the most significant challenges in providing such care is being able to manage resources as well as staff, students, parents and external agencies, especially when time and money are scarce. It is all too easy for schools to expend time and money to support their most vulnerable students, but there are many solutions that can be put into practice to provide the best pastoral care as efficiently and effectively as possible. This book is essential reading for all primary and secondary middle leaders, senior leaders and SENCOs who wish to provide the best support possible for their most vulnerable students, all while reducing pressure, stress and workload for themselves and their staff.

The final volume in the Handbook for Liturgical Studies series, Volume V: Liturgical Time and Space contains the concluding material for an integral study of the liturgy. It opens with a preliminary notion of time and space, before discussing in detail three types of liturgical celebrations on which time and space have a direct and particular bearing. The first of these is the Liturgy of the Hours. This topic is developed in the light of the early Christian tradition until the fourth century and its subsequent forms in both East and West. The second is the Liturgical Year, traditionally called the anni circulas. The development of the Liturgical Year during the first four centuries is reviewed. This is followed by adetaled study of the Byzantine, Roman, and non-Roman Western tradition. It concludes with the theology and spirituality of the Liturgical Year wherein the mystery of Christ as a saving event is made present in time, so that the faithful may lay hold of it through the Word and the sacraments. The theology of liturgical space is drawn from the mutual interaction between the assembled community, which gives meaning to the place of assembly, and the place itself, which upholds and signifies community.
