In Postcolonial Images of Care: Challenges of Care in a Neoliberal Age (Pickwick Publications), Lartey and Moon present voices of practical and pastoral theologians, academics, spiritual care providers, religious leaders, students, and activists working to provide greater intercultural spiritual care and awareness in the areas of healthcare, community work, and education.

The book’s contributors vary across ethnic identity, religious and cultural tradition, gender and sexual orientation, as well as communal and personal realities—expanding the discourse of spiritual care and participating in the ongoing paradigm shifts in the field of pastoral and practical theology.
