Confident Spiritual Care in a Postmodern World

Salladay, Susan A.

Collapse Box

Abstract

Postmodern thinking that embraces tolerance and suggests there is no absolute truth may make Christian nurses feel uncertain or uncomfortable in giving spiritual care, especially care consistent with their beliefs. Christian nurses can be guided by the example of Jesus Christ and the Apostles Peter and Paul in the Bible, being sensitive to postmodern perceptions without being intimidated by them and feeling neither obligated to share their faith, nor afraid to do so if a patient asks and gives consent.
