A Soul Care Approach for Chaplains and Pastors
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Our churches are finding that people returning from our country's wars in Iraq are often persons with special needs. Ken Walden, from firsthand experience with these veterans, gives solid help to pastors and congregations seeking to minister to those in pain in the aftermath of Iraq."
Professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry, Duke Divinity School
"In the authentic form of a spiritual advocate, prophetic caregiver, and empathetic researcher, Chaplain Major and Pastor Walden has provided a vital analysis and insightful presentation of a rapidly emerging problem and its residual implications for contemporary military members, their families, and their communities of origin. Reverend Walden's pastoral care insights reflect keen therapeutic relevance, as well as a tutorial bridge for pastoral and lay leaders who seek to provide practical and effective social interventions, resources, and support to wounded warriors experiencing pain and trauma as a result of their dedicated service."
