Selected Chaplaincy Bibliography

Working Bibliography.  Much work remains to be done in defining the nature of “Professional Chapliancy.”  Only with respect to the “Professional Correctional Chaplaincy” are we attempting to be comprehensive.  Other works and histories pertain to chaplaincy as seen below. 

See Serials/Periodicals Page for fuller coverage of serials and periodicals.  For a more comprehensive look, yet still short, look at the listings of the thousands of works in the Main Archives section that categorizes the works relevant to Death, Bereavement. Grief, Crisis and Divorce—these are only up to the year 2000.
