Donald Capps argues that traditional theologies of guilt are unable to address those gripped by shame and calls for a different pastoral approach in counseling and ministry. He makes the case that a reformulation of the theology of sin is needed, explaining that the time has come for us to recognize that taking care of our selves--this once-in-a-lifetime gift--is emphatically not a self-indulgence, but a moral imperative.
