Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Korean Resources for Pastoral Theology makes a significant contribution to the field of pastoral care and pastoral theology in the United States . . . The authors introduce Koreans who are actively searching for God's spirit at work in healing, liberation, and reconciliation . . . It is like seeing a newly created world of God, in which all diversities dance together."
--Heesung Chung, Professor of Pastoral Counseling, Ewha Womans University
"This book is full of insightful and enthralling information about Korean cultural values . . . Poling and Kim present invaluable tools for pastoral counselors, Christian leaders, and theologians to enrich the horizons of pastoral theology and counseling at the global level."
--Andrew S. Park, Professor of Theology and Ethics, United Theological Seminary
"Korean Resources for Pastoral Theology is an excellent resource for those interested in finding the way back to practices of spirituality of care that foster sustainability, interdependency, justice-making, healing, and freedom without violence. Critical and constructive in their analysis, Poling and Kim present a promising intercultural and interreligious perspective for Christian pastoral theology through the particular lens of Korean Christianity."
--Wonhee Anne Joh, Associate Professor of Systematic Theology, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
"We have learned that how to conduct one's cultural experiences, not as a footnote, but as a main body of shaping one's pastoral theology, has been no less significant to us than how to conduct universal, psychological inquiry. I do believe Korean Resources for Pastoral Theology might be a timely, great asset to the broader, main body of building pastoral theology."
--Soo-Young Kwon, Professor of Pastoral Theology, United Graduate School of Theology
