Prophets have a reputation of changing the relation between people and God
for the better. Christianity has a long history of prophets who direct the
faithful towards more justice and righteousness. What can Christians learn
from prophets for daily life, for contemporary theology and pastoral care?
This book undertakes the endeavor to look at prophetic acting from a
biblical, pastoral and ethical perspective. The contributions of both,
pastoral theologians and pastors from around the globe, make this study a
unique exercise to keep the prophetic perspective in theological
reflection and pastoral practice.
