Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Drawing on his cultural background growing up in Zimbabwe as well as his many years of teaching experience . . . Mucherera has brought together a whole host of pastoral theologians in order to demonstrate the relevance of narrative therapy for addressing contemporary pastoral-care problems. This is a much-needed reference for pastors, pastoral counselors, pastoral theologians, Christian counselors, and spiritual guides."
--Edward P. Wimberly, Professor of Pastoral Care, Interdenominational Theological Center
"This book is an excellent illustration of the transformative power of narrative practices. Mucherera has brought together contributors from diverse cultural backgrounds to demonstrate the power of narrative in moving people from painful, dominant stories to more preferred ways of being and living in the world. This is a great addition to the literature on narrative therapy and ought to be read by counselors, clergy, students, and counseling educators. I highly recommend this book."
--M. Fulgence Nyengele, Professor of Pastoral Care and Counseling, Methodist Theological School
