Serving the Whole Person
The Practice and Understanding of Diakonia
Kjell Nordstokke, Editor
Diakonia, widely understood as the ministry of care and solidarity with people who suffer and are marginalized, has been given renewed attention by the church. As a theological term, diakonia can stimulate reflection on why the church is involved in such action and how the action might be carried out.
This book, reflecting on various Lutheran practices, illustrates the rich variety of diaconal practices in the different regions of the world.
The aim of these reflections is to seek a common platform for acting together, sharing the understanding that diakonia is an integral part of being a church in mission.
