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.
