Recapturing the spiritual dimension of pastoral ministry
Neil P Babcox
The thesis of this project is that pastors need to recapture the spiritual aspects of pastoral ministry. Chapter 1 analyzes the problem and offers reasons for how it arose. Chapter 2 surveys "lost treasures" of Reformed spirituality with a special reference to Calvin's Institutes and the Book of Confessions. The project envisions clergy gathering together in small groups for the purpose educating of themselves about the spiritual life through book discussion and for supporting one another through prayer. The author concludes that the project presents a model that can be easily duplicated and can be of great value to clergy.
