The Return of the Soul in Pastoral Ministry

From September to November 2021 I have a sabbatical leave. During my sabbatical I work on a new project in which I bring together a few threats that I have been developing in my teaching and thinking.

In the book I am going to write, I will study the relevance of the soul for practical theological discourse and pastoral theology. Two cases will be researched in more depth: pastoral care as spiritual formation; and pastoral care as end-of-life care.

My sabbatical implies that I will be working less on other projects. I’ll be back in December.
