A Christian Theology of Chaplaincy [9781785920905]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Chaplaincy is a rapidly growing ministry, but one that has been the centre of little theological discussion. Focusing on understanding what chaplaincy is and how it is exercised in different contexts, this book intends to support the work of chaplains by providing a theological examination of their ministry.

The chapters in this book discuss how the work of chaplains outside the structures of the Church and yet frequently carried out by ministers authorized by the Church relates to some of the key questions of how the Church understands itself in relation to the world (i.e. institutions and structures that are not part of the church), whether or not the chaplains should engage in converting non-Christians to Christianity, and how chaplaincy is carried out both from within Christianity and in a multi-faith environment.

This book explores the role of chaplains and the benefits of chaplaincy as a form of ministry as well as an examination of the personal characteristics and disposition best suited to serving as a chaplain. Chaplaincy and Christian Theology considers the nature of chaplaincy in public spaces and the implications of Christian theology within this ministry. Essential reading for chaplains, students of theology, and anyone involved in Christian ministry and Christian theology.


AUTHOR: The Reverend Dr John Caperon lives in East Sussex and previously served as a school chaplain for 12 years and head teacher before retiring. The Reverend Canon Dr Andrew Todd is the Director of the Centre for Chaplaincy Studies at Cardiff University. The Reverend Canon Dr James Walters is Chaplain and Interfaith Adviser at the London School of Economics.
