A fresh look at pastoral care - people coming alongside people.
Follow the journey that has led Trevor J. Partridge to understand how the Church can come alongside people facing life's challenges.
Drawing on his personal and pastoral experience, Trevor focuses our attention to the ever-growing need for pastoral care in the Church. With passages from Scripture anchoring each chapter. Love With Skin On reveals God's heart for us to be people who care and come alongside one another, the way He journeys alongside us.
Turning to the New Testament, Trevor introduces the fresh pastoral care initiative, Paraclesis, and explains how our journeys and life experience can become a valuable gift to help others in need.
This is an excellent contribution and will fill a significant gap in church life. Trevor has dug up and revealed a missing jewel!

I could not recommend this book to you more as the definitive statement of Church life in the twenty-first century. Buy a copy of this book - better still, buy two, one for you and one for your friend who will "borrow" and never return it.
