The Journal of Pastoral Theology was established in 1990 by the Society for Pastoral Theology to: further the understanding of pastoral theology as a theological discipline and to clarify the nature of the discipline; maintain a view of pastoral theology as a constructive theology that emerges from the exercise of caring relationships, with attention both to present lived experience and to knowledge derived from the past; provide an intentional forum for the voices of diverse persons, women and men, of many cultural and ethnic backgrounds; foster multi-cultural understandings of issues in the discipline; promote and encourage multi-discipline and multi-cultural research in the field of pastoral theology; provide resources for those who teach and those who study, through recording current research and assessing the relevant literature; provide for the construction of sound theological principles for guidance and critique of practices of pastoral and spiritual care; and work creatively, through synthesis and construction, to define the frontiers and parameters of the discipline.
